HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in North Cheam and which is cheaper?

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

If the North Cheam property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the North Cheam property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a house and the agent has stated that it has been constructed with Forest of Dean stone. What factors must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in North Cheam are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Maintenance tips include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds. Purchasers renovating homes in North Cheam should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. To source stone quarried in North Cheam, you can contact local suppliers.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 16th Century cottage in North Cheam. What effect will the building's rafter roof have on upkeep?

Some purchasers hope to own property with real personality. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can create issues for homeowners. Property showcasing traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional materials may be required. This may mean long-term upkeep. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your building surveyor for more information.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us in a house we used to own, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the loft be an issue?

This is frequently addressed by building surveyors. Houses across North Cheam can be blighted by difficulties with the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to dormers. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as repairing a bowing truss) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
