HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hungerford and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Hungerford property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Hungerford property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property in Hungerford with Portland stone walls. Are there any major problems that we should be aware of?

Buyers of a Grade I listed building should consider that they may need to ensure any future repairs are 'sympathetic', which the local authority may police. Problems which impact stone-built houses can vary greatly, with issues like deteriorating mortar being quote common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Hungerford are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots,

as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage. Purchasers renovating houses should be aware that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. To source stone quarried in Hungerford, you can contact local suppliers.

If you need more assistance, get in touch with a local mason or walling contractor. For example, Lloyd John Of Bedwyn Ltd, Hungerford Park, Hungerford, RG17 0UT may help.

Conservatory

For the Hungerford HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a Condition rating 2 have on conservatory and porches?

An 'amber' condition rating of 2 implies that some repair work is needed to arrest further decay. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

This section covers conservatories and porches. The type and condition of these parts will also be mentioned in the report. Steps that spring or sag when used is an example.
