HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Wimborne Minster and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Wimborne Minster property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Wimborne Minster property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Window frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact can a Condition rating 2 have on windows?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a house or flat. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the Wimborne Minster property in question will need some work. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. One example would be any broken glass windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Wimborne Minster, what input does a property surveyor in Wimborne Minster give for property constructed with Sussex bond brick? Does render make a difference?

Brick-constructed property in Wimborne Minster demonstrate several benefits compared to other building materials, but they can also be subject to a number of issues. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with directions for remedy. One serious matter is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Edwards Geo A may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 1 Wynwood Rd, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 6NB or 0115-946 4160.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

What should we be wary of when buying a building close to a landfill site

Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems for example gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Wimborne Minster will flag up any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out conveyancing searches of the Landmark data sets and Poole Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
