HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Coningsby and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Coningsby property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Coningsby property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick advice for the Coningsby property we are purchasing?

Brick Coningsby buildings will suffer from both minor and serious issues. Your chartered surveyor can investigate these as part of their report. One serious matter is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Cooney T Brickwork Ltd, 37 Harlesden Gdns, London, NW10 4EY on 07930 718071 for a quote for repair work.

Buyers in Coningsby should consider that a selection of different courses and brick making techniques feature in construction throughout Coningsby. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. Consider renegotiating the price of the Coningsby property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the Coningsby building we're buying, but we are not certain - What advice should we get?

Purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Regrettably, pest problems can be costly to fix and affect the health of residents.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for vermin may include traps. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic caused problems at our old property. What does the Coningsby property surveyor investigate during the survey?

Residential property in Coningsby with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer difficulties with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the decking to the wind braces. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Coningsby, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like a complete replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
