About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Southville

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Southville and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Southville property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Southville property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Southville home surveyor investigate flooding, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Telegraph). Both home buyers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that action is taken, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The property survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the residential property is at risk.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property create issues for owners? What issues should we be aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of property in Southville. Defects affecting stone-built property in Southville can vary, delamination being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property in Southville, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decoration. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include 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.

Purchasers renovating property in Southville should be aware that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. To source stone quarried in Southville, you can contact local suppliers.
