What Home Survey is the best choice for my intended home purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Cranham property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Cranham property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Cranham house what impact will a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually, where access is possible. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system. Rusted guttering is one example.

Green (condition rating 1) is the best possible assessment, and confirms that this part of the property is in a good state. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance.

Stone block wall damage

Can property in Cranham partially constructed with stone create upkeep problems for a new owner? Which factors should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Problems which impact stone-built homes can vary greatly, with issues like delaminated or cracked paintwork being quote common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify 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.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick walls on this Cranham home appears to have several cracks - what should we do?

Brick-constructed apartments in Cranham do benefit from many advantages over timber-built homes, but they can also show signs of distinct issues, including moisture damage and badly applied render. One serious matter is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Www.Landbrickwork.Co.Uk should be able to assist with a maintenance quote.
