HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Clerkenwell and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Clerkenwell property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Clerkenwell property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a home and the estate agent has told us that it has been built with Bath stone. Which major issues should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Issues including erosion of pointing joints affect many stone-walled Clerkenwell properties. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts. Stone walls can

also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Clerkenwell RICS surveyor inquire into any flooding damage?
