HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Blandford Forum and which one is the cheapest?

If you are planning to make major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish bond upkeep suggestions - can you assist? Is age a factor?

Blandford Forum brick-walled apartments can indicate diverse problems. The RICS surveyor should report on these. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Contact Edwards Geo A for a repairs estimate at 0115-946 4160 or 1 Wynwood Rd, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 6NB.

For home purchasers in Blandford Forum seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Blandford Forum? Could damaged drainage lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rain can have on a property is rarely paid due attention by purchasers. If you have only been to the home on a sunny day, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that rainwater goods are at risk include spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. This could then result in rising damp.

Luckily, drainage problems are quite easy to fix.However, the damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Substandard guttering

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Blandford Forum, can you give some examples of Condition rating 2 defects impacting rainwater pipes and gutters?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Blandford Forum are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the impact on the property individual defects may have. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

An example of this is downspouts discharging onto the roof. They are visually inspected. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system.
