Home Buyers Survey in Midhurst

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Midhurst and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Midhurst property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Midhurst property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Midhurst that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really smooth type of render. Typically it is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very attractive and is common on some Georgian homes. It can have lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Midhurst commonly detail defects for instance trapped water leading to damp problems. Other potential problems could involve attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet bricks. Re-covering Stucco problems can be difficult as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in Midhurst - What does the Midhurst building surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Questions like this are often asked of building surveyors by buyers in Midhurst who are aware that property may be exposed to issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. decking. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

The expense of repairing a bowing truss, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Midhurst roofing specialist can provide one. Call Garnett Roofing & Construction of 1/Suite 2 Woods Building/The Wharf, Midhurst, GU29 9PX on 01730 816033 for an estimate.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old warehouse conversion. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

Many buyers in Midhurst have considered buying a house with personality, like a Medieval cottage. Use of traditional methods, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can make the final cost hard to predict.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can rainfall have on our new Midhurst house? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which high levels of rainfall has on a residence is rarely paid due attention. For example, flaking or efflorescence on external walls can often mean that the drainage systems are under performing. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. If left untreated, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we should be conscious of when planning to buy a house in Midhurst in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local issues and any relation may have on the property. Property Prices will likely be inflated owing to conservation areas being in their original state. However many of them are falling into have fallen into shoddy condition e.g. out of keeping extensions

Surveyors can be expected to inform you if the house looks to be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Midhurst Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Out of keeping adjustments to the property may also be advised, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
