HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Adderbury and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Adderbury property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Adderbury property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the surveyor give details on the safety of the gas mains supply?

The RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected as part of the Adderbury survey, as well as gas connected appliances e.g. chimney breasts or flues. A Adderbury RICS chartered surveyor won't remove gas fittings and won't run any tests on the gas system. Needless to say, gas can be hazardous, should there be any concerns about gas, call an engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Adderbury. Can a home buyers survey consider any flooding damage?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams can all result in extensive flooding damage; sensible owners and home purchasers in Adderbury are right to consider precautions. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home enables the property surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The property surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the Sor Brook at Bodicote and Adderbury and The Bloxham Brook at Bloxham, near Adderbury, on 22 Nov 2012.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a house and the estate agent has confirmed that it has been constructed with Doulting stone. What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Ranging from Mountcharles Sandstone to Broadway Dark Cream Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues including deteriorating bedding affect many stone-walled houses. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.
