HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Easthampstead and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Easthampstead property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Easthampstead property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home. Are there any major factors that we should be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Monks Park Limestone to Cromwell Sandstone. Problems which impact stone-built homes in Easthampstead can vary greatly, with issues like weathered stone being quote common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the unmodernised property I am intending to buy it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring - will the surveyor advise on the electrical system?

This should include an overview or check of the unconcealed areas of the wiring or fusebox in addition to potential areas for concern such as checking the external installations e.g. out houses with a power supply or any garden lighting.
