HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Great Dunmow and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Great Dunmow property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Great Dunmow property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1880s home with stone walls. What related issues must we watch out for, and what will the survey reveal?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including cracks. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Great Dunmow are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited

structures. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, and may need repointing. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it the right choice to choose a full structural survey prior to buying a shabby, forties duplex maisonette in Great Dunmow?

The Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its renaming in 2010 by RICS. This is the best survey when buying a modified property like an extended Great Dunmow house. It will provide comprehensive and critical information about the property's construction in addition to any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may wet conditions have on a property in Great Dunmow? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

I find it odd that the effect which wet conditions has on a residence is not given the attention it deserves. Signs that drainage systems are blocked include rotten wooden gutters. Blocked rainwater goods can result in rotten roof timbers.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
