HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Hackenthorpe and which is cheaper?

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

If the Hackenthorpe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Hackenthorpe property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Monk bond maintenance tips - can you assist? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Hackenthorpe brick-walled buildings can be affected by considerable issues, such as lack of a damp proof course. For instance, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Glyn Jenkins Bricklaying Contractors Ltd, 15 Were Cl, Warminster, BA12 8TB on 01985 212261 for a quote for repair work.

One example is sailor bond or Monk bond may be used in the construction of buildings in Hackenthorpe. It may be

appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

We are buying a property in Hackenthorpe but are worried about bugs - What can we do?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Signs may not be obvious, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. If you strongly suspect an issue with house longhorn beetle, or any pest, speak to your chartered surveyor
