Home Buyers Survey in Shrewton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Shrewton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Shrewton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Shrewton property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick chimney on this Georgian property appears to have several cracks - what should we do? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick homes in Shrewton will be subject to considerable issues, such as lack of a damp proof course. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Keating M J of 577 Hitchin Rd, Luton, LU2 7UL on 01582 612715.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I need to be aware of if intending to buy a house in Shrewton near a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Surveyors in Shrewton are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local area issues and any connection they have on the property and its value. The price of property will probably be more than prices outside the area owing to them retaining original features. However a growing number have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

RICS surveyors are trained to tell you whether the location is/might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Shrewton Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are conducted by your legal representation. Unconsented changes to the property may be commented on but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to purchase a ground floor flat in Shrewton, does the chartered surveyor investigate water damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

A wide variety of factors can cause floods, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the home survey may advise on urgent repairs.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The chartered surveyor may ask the vendor or agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the Boscombe, Cholderton, Collingbourne Ducis, Hanging Langford, Hindon, Hurdcott, Idmiston, Newton Tony, Orcheston, Porton, Salisbury, Shipton Bellinger, Shrewton, Stratford Sub Castle, Tidworth, Tilshead, Tisbury, Wilton, Winterbourne Stoke and Woodford, near Shrewton, .
