HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Burton Bradstock and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Burton Bradstock property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Burton Bradstock property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a Burton Bradstock property surveyor give for a 60s home built from English bond walls? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-built converted property feature several advantages, but they will also indicate distinct issues. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. Edwards Geo A at 1 Wynwood Rd, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 6NB should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0115-946 4160.

For example, English bond or sailor bond are both used in Burton Bradstock converted property.

If the Burton Bradstock 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.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a cottage in Burton Bradstock. Will the property's age be a problem?

Older construction methods and materials can be problematic. Burton Bradstock property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a home and the seller has told us that it has been constructed with Hopton Wood stone. Are there specific defects to consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of houses. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include mould. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Burton Bradstock are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Purchasers renovating houses should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Burton Bradstock, you can contact local suppliers.
