Home Buyers Survey in Harbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Harbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Harbury property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Harbury property's general condition as well as information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The English bond walls on this Edwardian terrace might need repairs - what should we do? Does brick decay faster in Harbury weather?

Brick-walled Harbury property can suffer from considerable issues, ranging from signs of movement to efflorescence. Your Harbury surveyor would usually include these. A serious concern is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. For more information, contact a local builder, Conner T Brickwork Ltd of 30 Burwell Rd, London, E10 7QG on 07961 513134.

For home purchasers in Harbury seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks.

If the Harbury surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 17th Century converted cow-house. What consequences will the home's age have on upkeep?

For houses in Harbury built before the 20th Century, age can worry purchasers. Property built with traditional methods can be costly to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for property in a conservation area, Traditional materials may be required.
