HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Marston Moretaine and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Marston Moretaine property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Marston Moretaine property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a cottage constructed Kentish Rag stone. What should we look in to, and what does the survey cover?

Poor quality Paint can often cause problems for Marston Moretaine houses with stone walls. Problems which impact stone-built Marston Moretaine houses can vary greatly, with issues like cracks being quote common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Marston Moretaine are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I should look into if intending to buy a converted house in Marston Moretaine inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors must possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and any relation may have on the property. The price of property is typically significantly higher as a result of them resisting change. However many areas are falling into a poor state for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors will advise you if the home is or might be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent warned us that access to the roof of the house could be something to worry about, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the roof of the house be something to worry about?

Marston Moretaine homes that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof, for example, damp. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from valley gutters to concrete tiles. Factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A roofing specialist in Marston Moretaine with solid references should be able to assist with a quote.
