Home Buyers Survey in Longford

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Longford and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Longford property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give a thorough analysis of the Longford property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Ham Hill stone-built homes be problematic. Which problems should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Spynie Sandstone to Lees Endcliffe Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects such as salt contamination of affect many stone-walled homes. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to homes, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decoration. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Colnbrook Depot, Bardon Aggregate, Colnbrook Bypass, Slough, Berkshire, SL3 0EB, quarrying Crushed Rock, for details. Call 01753 685793 for more information.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact may wet weather have on our new Longford property?

Both in Longford, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately this issue is rarely considered properly by house purchasers. If you have only visited the residence in on a clear day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Blocked rainwater goods can result in fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

Luckily, problems with drains are quite easy to remedy. If poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
