HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Hurst Green and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hurst Green property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the Hurst Green property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Hurst Green property's state of repair as well as information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Hurst Green, and does our Hurst Green HomeBuyer Report mention it?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is rarely considered properly by purchasers. If you have only seen the property in good weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. This could then result in collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Do I need to get a full structural survey prior to investing in a substantially modified sixties duplex flat near Hurst Green?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now called the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if buying a post fifties unmodified Hurst Green flat built out of normal construction materials. The Building Survey is the most appropriate survey to choose in relation to the flat mentioned. Following a thorough site survey of all accessible areas, a formal report will be emailed and posted to the buyer summarising thorough and notable insight about the construction and uses of the property. Be aware that a number caveats are integral with a property survey as a Hurst Green surveyor is not authorised force or open up the fabric of the flat of assess serviceability of a boiler. Over and above house surveys, flats can complicate the survey meaning a surveyor will only look over the actual flat the surveyor may comment on shared parts like shared hallways.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1860s house with stone walls. What should we look in to?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone to Grinshill Sandstone, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
