Home Buyers Survey in Chopwell

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Chopwell and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Chopwell property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations on the Chopwell property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Chopwell property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1850s converted barn with stone walls. Which potential issues should we consider?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like spalling brick will vary with the particular type of stone.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Chopwell , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What advice would the Chopwell property surveyor give in their report?

Houses in Chopwell with no other major issues could feature roofing woes, like cracked and loose slates or tiles. From dormers to parapet walls, the whole roof must be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as asbestos cement removal) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A roofing contractor in Chopwell with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote. Speak to Reliant Roofing of 7 Argyle Ct, Stanley, DH9 8RD on 01207 281105 to request a quote.
