HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Burton upon Stather and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Burton upon Stather property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Burton upon Stather property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Burton upon Stather. What will we need to consider when purchasing a house built in around 1790? What effect will the house's thatched roof have on regular maintenance?

Vernacular architecture can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Burton upon Stather houses built with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Materials

suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. Mention this to your building surveyor for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Burton upon Stather and are looking for property with Diagonal bond walls. What warnings would the surveyor give?

Burton upon Stather brick-walled flats can be affected by numerous defects, from DPC failure to crumbling mortar. An especially severe issue is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs.

Burton upon Stather home purchasers may need to consider that a number of approaches and materials are found in many homes built in this country, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can rain have on our new building in Burton upon Stather?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that this issue is ignored by house purchasers. One indication that drainage are blocked is spalling masonry. Luckily, these defects are usually easy to fix if dealt with quickly. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
