About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Wilton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Wilton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wilton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Wilton property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Wilton Homebuyers Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

We are buying an old converted barn. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

A property's age can often be problematic. Homes built using traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Wilton listed buildings. If you are uncertain, speak to your chartered surveyor for more information.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence-related defects will my Building Survey review?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle beneath the structure's own weight. A builder should return to a new house after six months in order to repair settlement damage.

Cracks that appear without warning could indicate subsidence. Inside, keep an eye out for new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp. Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about vermin. What advice should we get?

Pests like cockroaches may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Wilton.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for a serious infestation may include chemical treatment. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange. Speak to a pest control specialist, such as Regional Environmental Services, P.O. Box 2105, Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP2 2BU on 0845 053 1662, to discuss remedies.
