HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Brixworth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Brixworth property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to consider when purchasing a building constructed in 1760? Will upkeep costs be higher?

Older construction methods and materials can concern buyers. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can end up costing more than initially budgeted. If you have doubts, speak to your Brixworth

surveyor for further advice. As an example of Medieval building, All Saints Church in Brixworth was constructed in around 1422.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor examine the safety of the gas heaters?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, as well as gas associated fixtures like chimney breasts. Any gas fittings won't actually be taken off. Gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

Can York stone-built homes be difficult to repair. Are there any major related issues that we should be aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Ranging from Portland Hard Blue Limestone to Hopton Wood Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Repair advice often includes clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.
