Home Buyers Survey in Drakes Cross

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Drakes Cross and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Drakes Cross property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Drakes Cross property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Flemish Diagonal bond guidelines for upkeep for the Georgian house we're going to buy?

Brick-built property do benefit from many advantages, but they will also suffer from diverse problems. Your chartered surveyor will mention these. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Smith Nigel at 25 Graig Ebbw, Rassau, Ebbw Vale, NP23 5SE on 07947 330491.

For home purchasers in Drakes Cross seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
