HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Epsom and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Epsom property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Epsom property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a converted barn constructed Doulting stone. Are there specific matters to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Incorrect use of Cement based mortar on a structure build with Hydraulic Lime can often cause problems for Epsom properties with stone walls. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include delamination. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible

to a higher rate of decay. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will my Chartered Surveyor consider on a stucco regency home in Epsom which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really just a smooth and flat render. Commonly it is applied to brick that dries to a very smooth surface. The finish is very aesthetic and is found on Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Epsom Homebuyer Reports frequently discover any number of problems for example, horizontal cracking revealing the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems could be when water beneath sills which causes detachment. Remedying Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are getting rarer.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 16th Century coast house. Will the property's age be a concern?

Many buyers would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. Older construction methods and materials, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Properties built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed property, Traditional materials may be required. This may make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential. If you plan to make alterations to a period house, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.
