HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Bedmond and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Bedmond property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Bedmond property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Bedmond property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a farmstead. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

Use of traditional methods can concern buyers, and Property built with traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for listed property, Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may be required. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create problems? I am buying a house in Bedmond. Can the Bedmond HomeBuyer Report investigate this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property in Bedmond can have unwanted consequences. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Bedmond and are looking for a house with rat-trap bond walls. What input does a Bedmond property surveyor give?

Brick Bedmond properties will be affected by distinct issues, ranging from sulphate attack to inadequate damp-proofing. One frequently reported defect is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. RSK Brickwork may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 32 Bronte Cl, Erith, DA8 1YB or 07840 097336.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork.
