Home Buyers Survey in Liss

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Liss and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Liss property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Liss property's general condition as well as including information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Will a home with stone walls create issues? Which related issues should we consider?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Defects affecting stone-built Liss properties can vary, cracks being relatively common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 19th Century gatehouse. What impact will the building's construction have on maintenance?

Some buyers would like to own a home with character. A property's age, however, can sometimes be an issue. Liss homes showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. Constructed in the 16th century, Liss Place in Liss is a good example of a Post Medieval house.

Chimney stacks

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Liss what could a Condition rating 3 mean for 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

One example would be a chimney cap which is obstructed, loose or missing (or even an incorrect type for the flue). They are inspected by eye, using binoculars as necessary.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Liss are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property purchasers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular Liss house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller warned us that access to the attic could be problematic. Will access to the attic be problematic?

This is often asked by purchasers who know that homes can be hiding serious roofing woes. From fascias to ceiling joists, the whole roof should be investigated, 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 contractor in Liss with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.
