Home Buyers Survey in Maulden

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Maulden and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Maulden property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Maulden property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons in upgrading to a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report if buying a un-loved house?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered by RICS Surveyors as a new more technical survey which is classified as the Building Survey is now available. This is now the most appropriate property survey when buying an altered house - such as a tatty Maulden house. A Building Survey portrays in depth and often serious advice concerning the buildings construction and any maintenance needs a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick wall upkeep suggestions for the Georgian property we're purchasing? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built Maulden houses do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also be affected by various issues and defects, from frost damage to defective mortar. For instance, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. B M J at 17 Wyburn Av, Barnet, EN5 5TG on 020 8441 1457.

Buyers in Maulden should consider that a great deal of variety feature in construction throughout Maulden. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the building we are hoping to move into We noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will a Maulden Homebuyer Report go into detail on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Maulden Homebuyer Report your surveyor should report on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that they are in an unsatisfactory state. A professional surveyor is required to concerns such as looking at any external installations, for example external power supply.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed should form part of the Homebuyer report in Maulden. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE suggest that a PIR be conducted every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Stone block wall damage

Can houses in Maulden partially constructed with stone create upkeep problems for the buyer? What defects must we watch out for?

From Swaledale Fossil Limestone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like staining will vary with the particular type of stone. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Maulden are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

If, in the course of carrying out maintenance, you need further advice, consider a stonemason or specialist in Maulden. For example, F G M Stone, Maulden Garden Centre, Water End Rd, Maulden, Bedford, MK45 2BJ (Tel: 07787 257205) may help.
