HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Fenton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Fenton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Fenton property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick wall maintenance tips for the Tudor property we're purchasing?

Brick-constructed houses in Fenton demonstrate several benefits over timber-built homes, but they can also experience a range of defects, including weathering and horizontal cracking. For instance, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and should be taken very seriously. C S N Builders at 4 Midwinter Avenue, Milton, Abingdon, OX14 4XA should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01235 832504.

For home purchasers in Fenton seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled conversion. Are there specific related issues to bear in mind, and what does the survey cover?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Hard Blue Limestone to Grey Dunhouse Sandstone. Defects affecting stone-built Fenton properties can vary, spalling brick being relatively common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Fenton properties, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay more money for a full structural survey, instead of a Homebuyer Report when carrying out due diligence on regency house ?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its renaming a while ago by RICS. Choose a RICS Building Survey if you are thinking of buying the property described. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a post fifties unmodified house of conventional construction materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. There are several limitations come with any survey insofar as a surveyor will not be able to force or open up the structure of the building of inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.
