HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Lanchester and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Lanchester property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Lanchester property's condition as well as advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Lanchester Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when buying older property? What effect will the property's age have on repairs?

For traditionally-built Lanchester property, age can worry purchasers, and Property built with traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as suitable timber, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Lanchester and are looking for homes built with handmade bricks. What advice would a property surveyor in Lanchester give?

Brick-built Lanchester residences do benefit from many advantages in comparison to other forms of building. Unfortunately, they also show signs of various issues and defects, such as inadequate damp-proofing. For example, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and may require immediate attention. London Brickwork at 35 Holmdene Av, Harrow, HA2 6HP should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 020 8427 2910.

For example, stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
