Home Buyers Survey in Easthampstead

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Easthampstead and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

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

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Easthampstead property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home. Are there any major factors that we should be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Monks Park Limestone to Cromwell Sandstone. Problems which impact stone-built homes in Easthampstead can vary greatly, with issues like weathered stone being quote common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does rain have on our new house, and does our Easthampstead home buyers survey mention it? Could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is usually overlooked by property buyers. For example, leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage indicate that the gutters are a cause for concern.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I would need to verify if planning to buy an extended house in Easthampstead inside a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Easthampstead need to possess local knowledge of local considerations and the effect they have on the property and its value. The price of property will probably be significantly higher which is down to conservation areas being in good order. However many of them are falling into have fallen into shoddy condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors can be expected to inform you whether the building could be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Easthampstead Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic adjustments to the property may also be commented on, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would you give for a 50s home built with English bond walls?

Brick-built Easthampstead residences do benefit from many advantages compared to other building materials. Unfortunately, they also be subject to several common problems, such as horizontal cracking. An issue of particular concern is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. JSC Brickwork should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 07802 982326 or 152 Lennard Rd, Beckenham, BR3 1QP.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
