HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Upton Park and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Upton Park property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Upton Park property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property in Upton Park and the estate agent has stated that it has been built with Cotswold stone. Are there any major defects that we should be aware of?

Purchasers in Upton Park should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects affecting stone-built property can vary, deteriorating bedding being relatively common. 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. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Maintenance tips include repointing mortar with a suitable material.

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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My housemate spotted signs of pests in the hallway. How do we investigate further?

Pests like mites may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Upton Park. Regrettably, pest problems can be costly to fix and carry serious health risks. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for vermin may include traps.
