HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Earlsfield and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Earlsfield property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Earlsfield property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a house and the vendor has made us aware that it has been constructed with Slate. Which problems should we consider?

There is a long list of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like salt contamination of will vary with the particular type of stone. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like replacing missing or badly worn stones.
