Which Home Survey should I select for my potential property purchase in Ash?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if purchasing a property constructed from standard materials i.e. brick & tile, not dilapidated and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Ash) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor but is more exhaustive. Select this when buying a non standard property such as thatched buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ash and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Ash property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Ash property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Ash. What will we need to bear in mind when buying an old building? What consequences will the property's cladding have on repairs?

A property's age can create difficulties for an owner, and Ash homes employing traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller.If you have doubts, speak to your property surveyor for further advice. Built between 1549 and 1550, the Ashwood is an example of a traditional open hall in Ash.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered regency detached house in Ash which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually smooth type of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian and Regency houses. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water and hardens to a dense solid. Stucco is often problematic and Ash Home Buyers Suveys commonly show any number of problems e.g. trapped moisture culminating in damp problems which need attention. Other potential problems could include attack from sulphates or salts absorbed from bricks. Re-covering Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as craftsmen are becoming rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Ash, what recommendations will a surveyor in Ash make for buildings constructed with Fletton brick?

Ash brick-walled residential property can suffer from considerable issues. For instance, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and should be taken very seriously. Contact A D S Bricklaying & Stonework Specialists for a repairs estimate at 01934 852511 or Brookside Cottage/Bath Road, Langford, Bristol, BS40 5DN.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows, to the rare, such herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
