About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Barton le Willows

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Barton le Willows and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Barton le Willows property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Barton le Willows property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we need to be conscious of if planning to buy a property in Barton le Willows in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities. Barton le Willows surveyors need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the bearing may have on the property and its value. Property Prices will likely be significantly higher which is down to conservation areas being in good order. However many areas are falling into shoddy condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

RICS surveyors are expected note if the home is/might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are conducted during the legal process. Unsympathetic extensions to the property may also be noted, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Barton le Willows home with a loft conversion, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is often asked by buyers who know that homes can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof, for example, cracked and loose slates or tiles. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

The expense of replacement of a failed dormer, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A builder with solid references should be able to assist with a quote.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a conversion with Beer stone walls. What issues should we be aware of?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Wroxton Limestone to Westwood Ground Limestone. Issues including mould affect many stone-walled Barton le Willows homes. 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, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Barton le Willows should be able to supply local stone.
