HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kings Langley and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Kings Langley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Kings Langley property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I spend a bit more on full structural survey before buying an abandoned period home in Kings Langley?

Structural surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. If you are buying an unconventional Kings Langley property e.g. an older house - this is the most appropriate choice. This non prescribed format of report summarises often crucial details about the buildings state of repair in addition to any defects a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas. There are one or two limitations with any residential survey because a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Kings Langley house, an example being the removing roof space contents. Boundary walls and fences will also be checked out during the survey.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a house and the vendor has told us that it has been built with Wooton stone. What potential issues must we watch out for, and what does the survey cover?

There are numerous of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Issues including delamination affect many stone-walled property. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Kings Langley should be able to supply local stone.
