Home Buyers Survey in Bishopston

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bishopston and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Bishopston property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Bishopston property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1870s home with stone walls. What related issues should we be aware of?

Repair fees for stone-built properties can be higher than for more standard. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Bishopston are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

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.
