HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Tetbury and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tetbury property is an apartment, or is an older 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 are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Tetbury property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems we should check out when planning to buy a building in Tetbury in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have local knowledge of local area issues and the connection may have on the home. The price of property is usually significantly higher as a result of them resisting change. However a large number have been neglected and are in disrepair e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Property surveyors can be expected to report if the planned purchase could be is so classified and Section I of the Tetbury Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented changes to the building should be noted but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get English Garden Wall bond maintenance tips for the Victorian terrace we are purchasing? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-built Tetbury apartments demonstrate several benefits over buildings using regular cut stone. Unfortunately, they also show signs of several common problems, such as horizontal cracking. For example, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and may require immediate attention. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Wheeler N, 60 Kitwell La, Birmingham, B32 4AL on 0121-501 1973 for a quote for repair work.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one, to the rare, such Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the home we want to purchase we think we noticed that there is an old fuse board , will the Tetbury surveyor go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

During a Building Survey in Tetbury the surveyor should usually remark on the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor state. This should include an overview or check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the accessible sections of the wiring and other concerns such as reporting on the state of the fitted appliances such as heaters or where to find the consumer unit. Looking at any documentation from any recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Tetbury.
