About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Underwood

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Underwood and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Underwood property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Underwood property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Underwood? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Underwood and across the country, but the impact heavy rainfall can have on property is rarely considered properly. One indication that drainage are worth a closer look is corroded downspouts. If you are concerned, 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 resolve for a reasonable cost.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Underwood with stone walls create issues? What problems must we watch out for, and what does the survey cover?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. 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. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.
