HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Harold Hill and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Harold Hill property is an apartment, 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 planning to carry out major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Harold Hill property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could rainfall have on our new home in Harold Hill? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Regular rainfall is common in Harold Hill and across the country, but the impact high levels of rainfall can have on buildings is not given the attention it deserves. If you have only visited the home in dry conditions, issues may have been hidden, and may lead to lasting damage to the fabric of a home. Whether buying in Harold Hill or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix. If disregarded, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of vermin in the attic. Should we get a house surveyor?

Scare stories about house infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as wasps as minor annoyances. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for a serious infestation may include traps or destruction of tainted materials. If you believe wasps, or any pest, may be present, request that your chartered surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with Slate walls. Which defects should we consider?

Ranging from Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone to Broadway Dark Cream Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like delamination will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be 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.
