About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Eaton Bray

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Eaton Bray and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Eaton Bray property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the Eaton Bray property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Eaton Bray property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can structures constructed with stone create more problems for the owner? Are there specific defects to consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone to Totternhoe Limestone. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Lower End Quarry, Lower End, Totternhoe, Dunstable, Bedfordshire, LU6 2BU, quarrying Chalk, for details. Call 01234 712047 for more information.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Eaton Bray. Will access to the loft be a problem?

Homes in Eaton Bray with no other major issues can still be subject to issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

The expense of insulating the attic, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
