About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Maxton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Maxton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Maxton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Maxton property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a Maxton property and the agent has confirmed that it has been built with West Cornwall granite. Which matters should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Ranging from Red St.Bees Sandstone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Defects affecting stone-built property in Maxton can vary, cracks being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. 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. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Maxton should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Craighouse Quarry, Redpath, Melrose, Roxburghshire, TD6 9DU, which quarries Igneous & Metamorphic Rock, for details. Call 01896 822085 for more information.
