Looking for a Home Buyers Survey? Which survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Brondesbury and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Brondesbury property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Brondesbury property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can a property surveyor in Brondesbury make for a property built from Fletton brick?

Brick-built Brondesbury residences do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also be affected by a number of issues, from efflorescence to thermal movement. A problem regularly identified is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural

issues. Contact Webb E for a repairs estimate at 0117-932 2936 or 23 Watsons Rd, Longwell Green, Bristol, BS30 9DW.

For example, English garden wall bond or header bond may be used in the construction of residences in Brondesbury.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to investigate gutters, and does our house surveyor mention it?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is usually overlooked by home buyers. If you have only visited the property in on a dry day, obvious defects may be harder to find.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve. If not maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the Brondesbury building we're buying, but we are not certain. Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Brondesbury purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. This matter should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.
