HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Gowerton and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Gowerton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Gowerton property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older property in Gowerton. What should be budgeted for repairs?

Many purchasers have considered buying a home with character, such as a Georgian terrace. A property's age, however, can create issues for homeowners. Properties built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional materials may be required. This may mean long-term upkeep. Speak to your chartered surveyor for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick on this Gowerton home needs work - what should we do?

Gowerton conversions with brick walls can suffer from a range of defects, from inadequate damp-proofing to thermal movement.

A defect often found is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Brickwork O J may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 020 8398 3503 or 1 Fleece Rd, Long Ditton, Surbiton, KT6 5JP.

For home purchasers in Gowerton seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
