HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Burghfield Common and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Burghfield Common property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Burghfield Common property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Burghfield Common and are looking for buildings built from Dutch bond brick. What warnings would the surveyor give? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed residences in Burghfield Common demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be subject to numerous defects, such as erosion. The surveyor will cover these in his report. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. D & K may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 9 Farriers Cl, Woodley, Reading, RG5 3DD or 0118-944 1487.

For instance, English garden wall bond or Flemish bond may be used in the construction of residences in Burghfield Common. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it the right choice to upgrade to full structural survey prior to buying a neglected, Edwardian live work flat close to Burghfield Common?

The Full Structural Survey was recently renamed as a Building Survey. Choose a Building Survey for the property described. The HomeBuyer Report is enough if investigating a mid century or later unmodified flat assembled from typical building materials. You should be aware of certain limitations exist with any survey as RICS chartered surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the flat or advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations. Additionally flats can frequently complicate the survey and the surveyor will only scrutinise the flat itself, although he may go into detail about other tenant shared parts like such as the roof.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rain an issue in Burghfield Common?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on Burghfield Common buildings are usually overlooked. For instance, a waterlogged garden indicate that the drainage systems are worth a closer look, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix if dealt with quickly.
