Home Buyers Survey in Aspley Guise

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Aspley Guise and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Aspley Guise property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Aspley Guise property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Aspley Guise Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can rainfall have on a property? Also, if there is damage, will they be costly to fix?

Regular rainfall is common in Aspley Guise and across the country, but the effect which high levels of rainfall has on buildings in Aspley Guise is overlooked.

Signs that drainage are blocked include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. Poor drainage can lead to warped floorboards or beams.

Fortunately, these defects are usually easy to remedy, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this residence is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our property surveyor inquire into water damage?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage can all result in extensive water damage caused by flooding. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage. The chartered surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see a sixties house we intend to move into, it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a the surveyor report on the electrics?

When preparing a Building Survey in Aspley Guise a RICS surveyor should make a note on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. He or she should also potential areas for concern such as confirming the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters or the state of residual circuit breakers (RCD). A check for the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed will be part of the survey.

Stone block wall damage

Can property partially constructed with stone create upkeep problems for residents? Are there any factors that need to be investigated?

Incorrect specification of coating type to damp or defective walls can often cause problems for houses in Aspley Guise with stone walls. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like delaminated render will vary with the particular type of stone. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses in Aspley Guise, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include repointing mortar with a suitable material.
