HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Barnetby le Wold and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Barnetby le Wold property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Barnetby le Wold property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Beer stone-built homes be hard to maintain. What related issues must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Ranging from Mountcharles Sandstone to Totternhoe Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Melton Ross Quarry, Melton Ross, Barnetby, North Lincolnshire, DN38 6AE, which quarries Chalk, for details. Call 01652 688000 for more information.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent warned us that access to the loft could be difficult to arrange - What should we do about roof repairs?

This is a common concern for Barnetby le Wold home buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many homes could feature ponding, among a range of other roofing issues. From sheeting to ridge flashing, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the thirties house I am planning to buy it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will the Barnetby le Wold surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Barnetby le Wold Home Buyers Survey the surveyor will comment on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in an unsafe state. This should include a general view of any revealed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as areas e.g. examining the state of any fixed electrical appliances e.g. water heaters or confirming that the supplementary bonding is in the correct place. Inspecting the evidence of any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will form part of the survey in Barnetby le Wold.
