HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Eastwood and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Eastwood property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Eastwood property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old warehouse conversion. What consequences will the property's wooden structure have on repairs?

A property's age can create issues for homeowners. Eastwood property built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could make the final cost hard to predict.If you are uncertain, speak to your chartered surveyor for more information.

Stone block wall damage

Can houses built with stone cause problems for purchasers? Are there specific factors to bear in mind, and what does the survey cover?

From Cromwell Sandstone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include staining. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

If you need more assistance, consider a stonemason or specialist in Eastwood. For example, C E D Ltd at Eastview Ter, Langley Mill, Nottingham, NG16 4DF may help.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay more for a full structural survey on fifties house in Eastwood?

Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification in 2010 by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. Opt for the RICS Building Survey if you are considering the house described. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a non period unmodified house assembled from typical construction materials and methods. There are one or two limitations exist with a property survey - a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to force or open up the structure of the house for example, or inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.
