HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Botany Bay and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Botany Bay property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Botany Bay property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Botany Bay and are looking for property built from Diagonal bond walls. What advice would a Botany Bay property surveyor give? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick conversions show signs of considerable issues. The house surveyor can investigate these as part of their report along with recommendations. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. F T M Bricklayes may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 101A Hurst Rd, Bilston, WV14 9ET or 07904 714312.

Brick-constructed property can be found across Botany Bay, leading to a range of courses arrangements and colours. E.g. Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we need to look out for if buying a converted flat in Botany Bay in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Surveyors in Botany Bay are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and the bearing they have with the property. Values is typically higher than non conservation area equivalents because of conservation areas retaining original features. However many areas have fallen into shoddy condition for example - the removal front garden walls

Property surveyors will report whether the building is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of the Botany Bay Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Unapproved extensions to the building may also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer. Barker Gooch & Swailes are a local firm situated at 1 Cecil Court, Enfield, London, EN2 6BU should be prepared to give you some pointers. Tel: 020 8366 3161

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that a leak had been a concern. What aspects of the roof of the building will be looked into?

Residential property in Botany Bay in otherwise fine condition could unfortunately be experiencing difficulties with the roof, for example, missing tiles. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheeting, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The expense of a complete replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.
