Home Buyers Survey in Fulwell

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Fulwell and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Fulwell property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Fulwell property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Fulwell. Is there any Sussex bond upkeep guidance we should be aware of??

Brick-built homes demonstrate several benefits, but they will also experience a range of defects. For example, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and may require immediate attention. A local builder should be able to assist. Call A Class, 3/Crowhurst House/Aytoun Rd, London, SW9 0UD on 07508 754058 for a quote for repair work.

A range of techniques of brick building have been used for centuries. One example is rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Building Surveys on houses

When acquiring a doer-upper Victorian semi detached property in Fulwell - is it best to opt for a full structural survey?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if buying a post 1950s unmodified property built out of normal construction materials. A Building Survey is definitely the advisable survey to go for the house mentioned.

There are some limitations exist with any residential survey - a surveyor is not able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the structure of the property of assess safety of gas sources.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does the property surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Homes in Fulwell that are otherwise ideal may be exposed to difficulties with the roof, for example, wet rot. From the dormer windows to the collar ties, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Fulwell contractor. Contact C & S Chimney Services of 1/Rest Hill Cottage, Over Worton, Chipping Norton, OX7 7EN on 01608 683759 for an estimate.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the home we plan to buy. What advice should we get?

Pests like cluster flies may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Fulwell. Regrettably, pest problems can be very expensive to resolve and affect the health of residents. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Fulwell with stone walls generate lots of maintenance costs? Are there specific issues to bear in mind, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone to Cromwell Sandstone. Issues including weathered stone affect many stone-walled Fulwell property. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Fulwell property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Repair advice often includes cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.
