About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Daventry

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Daventry and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Daventry property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Daventry property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a home close to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous waste. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Potential health problems for example gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Daventry surveyors will find structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Daventry Local Authority and advise you .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to think about when purchasing an old building? Will the building's age be an issue?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a Tudor home. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can create issues for homeowners, and Daventry homes built with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Daventry's conservation areas, Materials suitable for the work may be required.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick wall advice - can a surveyor in Daventry assist?

Brick-constructed structures in Daventry feature several advantages, but they can also experience various issues and defects. Your house surveyor would usually include these. One serious matter is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Bona-Fide Brickwork, 296 Victoria Rd, Ruislip, HA4 0DP on 01895 674310 for a quote for repair work.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property.

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor advise on the state of repair of the gas installations?

A RICS chartered surveyor will visually look at any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) for example, as well as gas affiliated gas fittings in the home for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). Any fittings however, won't be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.
