HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Hurlingham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Hurlingham 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 are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Hurlingham property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Hurlingham, what advice would a property surveyor in Hurlingham give for a 40s residence built with brick chimney?

Brick-walled Hurlingham property can indicate numerous defects, including frost damaged pointing and spalling. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Contact Brijon Construction for a repairs estimate at 0151-651 1689 or 21 Hampton Chase, Prenton, CH43 9HE.

A great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture of brick building have been used for centuries. As an example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have learnt that clay soil can be an issue for buildings in Hurlingham. Does a Home Survey discuss soil composition the report, and what defects will be reported on?

There are several common problems associated with clay soil, with subsidence being a common example. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property, such as separation of the skirting board from the floor. A Hurlingham surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does wet weather have on our new home in Hurlingham? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, rain and the effect it can have on Hurlingham buildings are not considered. For instance, a waterlogged garden can often mean that the gutters are a cause for concern.

Fortunately, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
