About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Chilwell

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Chilwell and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chilwell property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the Chilwell property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Chilwell property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will a surveyor in Chilwell make for property built from Dutch bond brick? Does render make a difference?

Brick-constructed structures in Chilwell do benefit from many advantages, but they can also indicate both minor and serious issues. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey along with recommendations. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Contact A S A P for a repairs estimate at 020 8205 3775 or 64 Hyde Crescent, London, NW9 7HA.

Buyers in Chilwell should consider that a good selection of methods and styles are found in many homes built in this country. As an example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Chilwell?

Regular rainfall is common in Chilwell and across the country, but high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on a structure are rarely considered properly by house purchasers. If you have investigated the home in warm weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that gutters are worth a closer look include rusted iron elements. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to resolve, if caught early, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the reason for having a full structural survey when looking into a substantially modified detached property in Chilwell instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Although sometimes, and incorrectly, described as Structural Surveys by many, they have been replaced by Building Surveys You should go for the Building Survey in relation to the property you are planning to buy. A HomeBuyer Report is sufficient for a mid 20th century of later unmodified Chilwell house built out of typical construction materials. There are some caveats exist with any survey - a RICS surveyor cannot (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the house or investigate the internal state of any flues.
