HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Holsworthy and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Holsworthy property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Holsworthy property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a conversion and the estate agent has confirmed that it has been built with Wooton stone. Are there specific defects to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

The cost of upkeep for stone-built property can be higher than for more standard. Defects affecting stone-built property can vary, delaminated or cracked paintwork being relatively common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Purchasers renovating property should be aware that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. To source stone quarried in Holsworthy, you can contact local suppliers.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Holsworthy. What directions can you offer? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick Holsworthy residences will suffer from both minor and serious issues, such as defective mortar. Your chartered surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with feedback. One frequently reported defect is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Capital Brickwork may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01737 643316 or 3 Chesterton Dr, Redhill, RH1 3NZ.

For home purchasers in Holsworthy seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. 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.

Conservation area

Are there any things I need to consider if purchasing an extended house in Holsworthy in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and the relation may have with the home. House prices are usually higher which is down to them retaining their original character. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in disrepair e.g. out of keeping extensions

Surveyors are trained to inform you if the house looks to be classified as such and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved developments to the building should be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.
