HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Much Hadham and which is cheaper?

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

If the Much Hadham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Much Hadham property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Much Hadham property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will rain have on a house in Much Hadham? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this? Could damaged downspouts lower the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Much Hadham and across the country, but the impact high levels of rainfall can have on Much Hadham property is usually overlooked. If you have only visited the property you intend to purchase in good weather, issues may have been hidden.

Signs that drainage systems are at risk include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Blocked rainwater goods can result in penetrating damp.

Whether buying in Much Hadham or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix

if dealt with quickly. However, if the drains are not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a Much Hadham house and the seller has confirmed that it has been constructed with Cotswold stone. Are there any defects that need to be investigated?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Cromwell Sandstone. Defects such as delaminated or cracked paintwork affect many stone-walled buildings in Much Hadham. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings in Much Hadham, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, 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.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Much Hadham. What directions can you offer?

Much Hadham brick-walled property can be subject to several common problems. One frequently reported defect is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. A P L Brickwork at 139 Chart Downs, Dorking, RH5 4DE on 01306 877309.

A great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture of brick building have been used for centuries. As an example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
