  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Hatfield) will also be carried out by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this survey for unconventional , for example stone wall buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Hatfield and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hatfield property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hatfield property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a Hatfield building. Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for pests may include traps and removal of infected furniture. If you believe termites, or any pest, may be present, request that your Hatfield surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Defective door frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Hatfield what might a green light rating mean for 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

Quite a common example is excess condensation in a double-glazed door. Outside doors are to be opened and closed, but will not force open any without keys. Generally, the thresholds of doorways are also surveyed, checking that access is level, water is excluded from leaking into the property, etc. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a house and the seller has made us aware that it has been constructed with Clipsham stone. Are there specific problems to consider, and what does the survey cover?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Stainton Sandstone to Grinshill Sandstone. Defects such as spalling brick affect many stone-walled properties. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Hatfield are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Hatfield should be able to supply local stone.
