HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Barton le Willows and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Barton le Willows property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Barton le Willows property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay more for a full structural survey when buying a flat in Barton le Willows?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed as the Building Survey. It is now the correct choice of home survey when purchasing an altered home or a neglected flat. It will outline comprehensive and critical insight about the flats standard of construction and repair in conjunction with any defects, following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the flat. Furthermore flats typically mean access to the building can be prevented. Although the surveyor can only investigate the area within identifiable boundary of the flat, although he/she comment on other tenant shared sections of the property like the drains. For a more detailed breakdown of Building Surveys and HomeBuyer reports see surveys compared.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a conversion with Beer stone walls. What issues should we be aware of?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Wroxton Limestone to Westwood Ground Limestone. Issues including mould affect many stone-walled Barton le Willows homes. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Barton le Willows should be able to supply local stone.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests - Will a RICS surveyor look into this?

Buyers in Barton le Willows should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your chartered surveyor.
