Home Buyers Survey in Hawkshead

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Hawkshead and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Hawkshead property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations on the Hawkshead property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Hawkshead property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My housemate spotted signs of pests in the kitchen - Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. This issue should be taken seriously.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Treatment for insect infestation may include use of poison or removal of infected furniture.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a converted barn with Wooton stone walls. Which major problems should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Buyers of listed buildings built with stone should consider that appropriate maintenance methods and goods are used. This is monitored by the local council. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Hawkshead 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. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.
