Home Buyers Survey in Watnall

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Watnall and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Watnall property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Watnall property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to bear in mind when buying a house built in around 1780? What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Some buyers in Watnall have looked at purchasing a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. Older construction methods and materials, however, can often be problematic, and Watnall property featuring traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey. If you have doubts, speak to the surveyor for more detail. Built between 1449 and 1453, The Hollies is an example of a traditional property in Watnall.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Watnall. Is there any Scottish bond guidelines for upkeep we should be aware of?? Does brick decay faster in Watnall weather?

Brick-walled structures in Watnall can be subject to several common problems. These can include inadequate damp-proofing or crumbling mortar. Your surveyor in Watnall will cover these in his report and suggest potential remedies. A problem regularly identified is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. A local builder should be able to assist. Call A S A P, 64 Hyde Crescent, London, NW9 7HA on 020 8205 3775 for a quote for repair work.

For example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

If the Watnall surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
