HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Chinnor and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Chinnor property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Chinnor property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does wet weather have on a Chinnor property? Also, if there is work that needs to be done, will they be disruptive to fix?

I find it odd that the impact wet weather can have on a home is not given enough thought. Signs that gutters are at risk include "gushing" gutters, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair. Where this is disregarded, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Chinnor, and can a Chinnor building survey check any water damage?

The lives of many property owners in Chinnor and across the UK have been affected by flooding damage, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flood damage occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house enables the building surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The building surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get London brick upkeep guidance for the converted apartment we're buying? Does brick decay faster in Chinnor weather?

Brick-built Chinnor houses feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also be affected by numerous defects. These can include frost damage or horizontal cracking. Your Chinnor surveyor should report on these, with feedback. A serious concern is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Cooper Ian should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 0161-445 2763 or 1 Shireoak Rd, Manchester, M20 4NY.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
