HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Frogmore and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

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

If you intend to make an extension on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Frogmore property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Frogmore Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old renovated farmhouse. Will repairs costs be higher?

For traditionally-built Frogmore property, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Property featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may be required. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. Discuss this with your surveyor for more information.

Stone block wall damage

Will a home with stone walls create more problems? What related issues should we be aware of?

Incorrect use of Cement based mortar on a structure build with Hydraulic Lime can often cause problems for Frogmore properties with stone walls. Defects affecting stone-built Frogmore properties can vary, spalling brick being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Frogmore properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. 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, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
