HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Aldersbrook and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Aldersbrook property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Aldersbrook property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor give details on the condition of the gas appliances?

A local surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the meter is in an escape route where relevant, as well as gas associated fittings like chimney breasts. Any gas fittings won't however be taken off. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Aldersbrook?

I find it odd that rain and the effect it can have on houses are ignored by house purchasers. Signs that downspouts are under performing include mildew in the attic. Blocked rainwater goods can result in fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

Whether buying in Aldersbrook or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy. If poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home. Are there any defects that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

Incorrect specification of coating type to damp or defective walls can often cause problems for buildings in Aldersbrook with stone walls. Issues including spalling brick affect many stone-walled buildings in Aldersbrook. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Repair advice often includes cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
