Home Buyers Survey in Lakenham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Lakenham and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Lakenham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works on the Lakenham property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Lakenham property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 15th Century renovated farmhouse in Lakenham. Will the age of the property be a concern?

Many buyers would like to own a home with character, such as a Georgian terrace. A property's age, however, can create issues for homeowners. Lakenham homes featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. Speak to your surveyor for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Lakenham and are looking for a house constructed with Diagonal bond walls. What warnings would a property surveyor in Lakenham give?

Brick-walled Lakenham residential property can experience distinct issues. These can include erosion or crumbling mortar. For instance, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Mk Brickwork at 22/22/Blackwood Crescent, Blue Bridge, Milton Keynes, MK13 0LP on 07857 851463.

One example is common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
