About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Adderbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Adderbury and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

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

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Adderbury property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the building surveyor in Adderbury pay attention to during the survey?

Homes in Adderbury in otherwise fine condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof. Any part of the roof or loft, such as tie beams, ought to be checked. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

Repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Adderbury builder.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a house and the estate agent has confirmed that it has been constructed with Doulting stone. What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Ranging from Mountcharles Sandstone to Broadway Dark Cream Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues including deteriorating bedding affect many stone-walled houses. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the justification to go for the full structural survey when investing in a abandoned semi detached townhouse near Adderbury as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit commonly still called Structural Surveys by some - they are now named Building Surveys A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a mid 20th century of later Adderbury house of typical construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is definitely the advisable survey to opt for in relation to the house mentioned. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of all accessible areas, the surveyor's formal report is delivered to the purchaser summarising any crucial information about the materials used for the construction of the property.

There will be certain no go areas with any residential survey to be aware of as RICS chartered surveyor wont be able to force or open up the fabric of the Adderbury house - such as removing secured hatches.
