Home Buyers Survey in Dunchurch

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Dunchurch and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Dunchurch property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the Dunchurch property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Dunchurch property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Dunchurch, and will the building survey investigate water damage?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage could all cause major flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before flooding occurs. Flood water can enter a Dunchurch house through several routes, including badly fitted air bricks. The survey report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

External walls

In a Dunchurch HomeBuyer Report what are common defects Condition rating 2 impacting 'E4 - Main walls' ?

In Dunchurch, examples include efflorescence. Note that concealed elements will not be considered, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. This may not be urgent, however. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property buyers a clear understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would you give for a house built from brick chimney?

Brick-built Dunchurch structures feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also suffer from a range of defects, such as DPC failure. 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. Pelham Builders at 4 Pelham Rd, Wallasey, CH44 3AD should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0151-630 3807.

Dunchurch home purchasers may need to consider that a range of techniques are used in properties built throughout the ages, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
