HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chipping Campden and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chipping Campden property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Chipping Campden property's condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Chipping Campden Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it best to go for a full structural survey prior to acquiring a shabby, thirties first floor flat near Chipping Campden?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now named a Building Survey. This is the most appropriate survey to choose when buying an unusual home like a structurally modified flat in Chipping Campden. The formal report will give far-reaching details concerning the buildings standard of construction and repair in addition to any maintenance needs, following a thorough inspection. Over and above house surveys, flats frequently, by their very nature, mean the whole building cant easily be inspected. Although the surveyor is only able to advise on the flat itself although he/she give details of other tenant shared areas e.g. the drains. For a table containing a survey comparison please read here.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Chipping Campden property built Forest of Dean stone. Are there any major issues that we should be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

From Swaledale Fossil Limestone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Westington Quarry, Chipping Camden, Gloucestershire, GL55 6EG for details. Call 01386 841104 for more information.

Roof defects identified during a survey

One of the neighbours mentioned that the had been issues with cracked supports. What does the Chipping Campden house surveyor check when the property is surveyed?

Houses in Chipping Campden that are otherwise ideal could feature difficulties with the roof. From slates to ceiling joists, all aspects of the roof should be reported on, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The expense of laying tar paper or felt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
