HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Canons Park and which is cheaper?

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

If the Canons Park property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Canons Park property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Canons Park property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect may wet weather have on a Canons Park building? Will the Canons Park property surveyor report on this? Could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that rain and the effect it can have on a house are often overlooked by purchasers. If you have only seen the house you are buying in on a dry day, defects may not have been obvious. This can lead to overflowing or blocked sewage.

Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to repair, if identified early. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick chimney upkeep suggestions - can you assist? Does render make a difference?

Canons Park brick-walled houses can show signs of distinct issues, including inadequate damp-proofing and defective mortar. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. L A Brickwork should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01268 785041 or 12a Philbrick Crescent East, Rayleigh, SS6 9HQ.

A number of styles of brick building can be found across the UK. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 15th Century renovated farmhouse. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

A building's age can create issues for homeowners, and Property built with traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could mean long-term upkeep.
