About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Dartmouth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Dartmouth and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Dartmouth property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Dartmouth property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a Dartmouth house and the current owner has told us that it has been built with Cotswold stone. Are there specific matters to consider?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including delamination. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Dartmouth are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when buying an old building in Dartmouth? What impact will the property's age have on upkeep?

Use of traditional methods can often be problematic, and Properties employing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with your RICS surveyor for more information. Built in the 15th century, Old Castle in Dartmouth is a fine example of a Medieval-period castle.
