Which Building Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Dartford

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be chosen if you are buying a home made of conventional building materials i.e. brick and tile, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Dartford

    The Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Dartford) will also be carried out by a RICS chartered surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this for non standard e.g. wood frame or older homes.

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This is usually chosen by mortgage free buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Dartford property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Dartford property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a flat in the region a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including industrial rubbish disposal. No one wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include complex organic chemicals. Potential health problems for example birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will find structural issues linked to the site. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological data sets and Dartford Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a home constructed Clipsham stone. Are there specific issues to consider, and what does the survey cover?

Purchasers in Dartford should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like mould will vary with the particular type of stone. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the advent of Portland cement made lime mortar. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can the surveyor offer for a residence with brick walls?

Brick-built conversions feature several advantages, but they will also be subject to both minor and serious issues. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. GTB (Northwest) Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0151-633 2112 or 55 Market St, Wirral, CH47 2BQ.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks, to the rare, such sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
