Home Buyers Survey in Abbots Langley

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Abbots Langley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Abbots Langley property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Abbots Langley property's general condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Abbots Langley house, can you give examples of Condition rating 3 defects affecting outside doors?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Abbots Langley are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. Such issues can have a significant impact on a Abbots Langley property's value.

One example issue could be blocked drainage holes. External doors are checked where keys are available, but not forced open. Generally, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to bear in mind when buying a building constructed in 1730? What impact will the age have on maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can create difficulties for an owner, and Property showcasing traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea.If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with the Abbots Langley surveyor for more detail.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick chimney guidelines for upkeep for the home in Abbots Langley we are purchasing? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick apartments suffer from several common problems, ranging from defective mortar to frost damage. For instance, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and should be taken very seriously. Contact RSK Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 07840 097336 or 32 Bronte Cl, Erith, DA8 1YB.

One example is rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
