HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Budleigh Salterton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Budleigh Salterton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Budleigh Salterton property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a property in Budleigh Salterton - What should we investigate as part of the survey?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Budleigh Salterton. Houses across Budleigh Salterton can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheathing. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A builder in Budleigh Salterton with positive reviews can provide a quote. Contact Crystal Clear of 19 Barnfield Av, Exmouth, EX8 2QE on 01395 488812 to request an estimate.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a gatehouse. Will the property's age be a concern?

Use of traditional methods can concern buyers. Buildings employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. Discuss this with the Budleigh Salterton surveyor for more detail.

Stone block wall damage

Can stone-built houses be hard to maintain. What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

From Totternhoe Limestone to Mountcharles Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to homes, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in door construction. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. There are two kinds of lime-based mortar, hydraulic and non-hydraulic. It essential that the type of mortar be identified before any work be attempted. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
