HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Stratford Village and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Stratford Village property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Stratford Village property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a converted barn and the current owner has made us aware that it has been built with Bath stone. Which major issues should we consider?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Repair advice often includes fast replacement of any stones

which have become loose. Purchasers renovating homes should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Stratford Village, you can contact local suppliers.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor check the condition of the gas installations?

A will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the condition of the meter at the building, as well as gas connected appliances such as chimney linings. Your Stratford Village RICS surveyor won't actually remove any external fittings nor will the surveyor run any tests on the system or appliances. Of course, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Stratford Village, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What advice would the surveyor give in their report?

Homes in the area in otherwise fine condition can be hiding serious cracked and loose slates or tiles, among a range of other roofing issues. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar beams, ought to be checked. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

Roof maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing contractor in the local area for the job itself.
