HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hilperton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Hilperton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Hilperton property's condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What input does a Hilperton property surveyor give for buildings built with handmade bricks? What impact do Hilperton environmental conditions have?

Brick-constructed properties in Hilperton feature several advantages, but they can also experience considerable issues, from frost damaged pointing to badly applied render. A defect requiring immediate attention is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Turton M Brickwork Contractors Ltd at 3 Pinhoe Dr, Haverhill, CB9 7WF should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07801 544015.

E.g. stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Hilperton, and will the property surveyor consider possible flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of property owners in Hilperton and across the country. Both buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the residential property or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

The alert level for the Hawkeridge, Dursley, Yarnbrook, Biss Meadows Country Park and downstream of Trowbridge at Trowle Bridge and Bradford Road, near to Hilperton , was recently set by the Environment Agency on 2/11/11.
