HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Watlington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Watlington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Watlington property's condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying a bit more money for a full structural survey on Edwardian townhouse ?

Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its new title a while ago by RICS. When buying an unusual Watlington property, for example an unloved house - the Building Survey is now the most suitable home survey.

Typically a couple of days after an exhaustive inspection of any accessible parts of the house, a formal report is sent to you detailing any relevant insight on the construction materials used on the house. There will be certain no go areas with a property survey as the surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the Watlington house, an example being undoing electrical fittings.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a house in Watlington, does the HomeBuyer Report inquire into flood damage, or if other properties have been affected?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of owners in Watlington and across the country, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The surveyor may ask the residents if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Watlington. Is there any English Garden Wall bond guidelines for upkeep we should be aware of?? Does the age of the property matter?

Watlington flats with brick walls can be subject to a number of issues, such as weathering. For instance, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and should be taken very seriously. Gillespie John should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 020 8298 0081 or 23 Herbert Rd, Bexleyheath, DA7 4QE.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property.
