HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Corfe Mullen and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Corfe Mullen property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Corfe Mullen property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Corfe Mullen Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property constructed Slate. Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind?

From Totternhoe Limestone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like stone faces will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This may also require careful attention. Repair advice often includes.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would need to look into when buying a converted flat in Corfe Mullen in the vicinity of a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local authority. Surveyors in Corfe Mullen need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and any connection may have with the property. The value of homes tends to be significantly higher because of them retaining their original character. However a growing number are falling into a poor state e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors will inform you if the house is possibly classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Corfe Mullen Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unapproved extensions to the building should be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Corfe Mullen house with a loft conversion. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we pay attention to during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Corfe Mullen buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many residential properties could unfortunately be experiencing ponding, among a range of other roofing issues. From sheathing to roof battens, many parts of the roof and loft will be taken into account. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Corfe Mullen, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
