About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Lapworth

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Lapworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Lapworth property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Lapworth chartered surveyor check for flooding?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can all result in extensive flooding. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Home Buyers Survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property cause issues for the owner? Are there specific potential issues to consider?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Defects affecting stone-built buildings can vary, weathered stone being relatively common. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
