HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Parsons Green and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Parsons Green property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Parsons Green property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor inspect the safety of the gas flues?

Your local surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, in addition to gas related fixtures like ventilation of flue (if blocked). A Parsons Green local surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings and will not do any tests on the appliances or system. Gas can be unsafe and if there are any concerns about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations stipulate landlords must to commission appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .

Stone block wall damage

Can Cotswold stone-built properties be problematic. What should we be particularly aware of, and what does the survey cover?

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. Stone quarried in the area is common to local homes in Parsons Green, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will a Parsons Green surveyor make for a house with brick chimney?

Parsons Green residences with brick walls can suffer from distinct issues. These can include inadequate damp-proofing or sulphate attack. For instance, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Barford R A, The Haven/Bakers Green/Little Totham Rd, Little Totham, Maldon, CM9 8LT on 01621 788464 for a quote for repair work.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork.
