HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Clacton On Sea and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Clacton On Sea property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Clacton On Sea property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Will a cottage with stone walls generate high upkeep costs? Which major defects should we consider?

Purchasers in Clacton On Sea should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects such as penetrating damp affect many stone-walled properties in Clacton On Sea. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Clacton On Sea are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
