HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Iver and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Iver property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Iver property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would the surveyor give for a home constructed with English bond walls? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Iver brick-walled houses can experience distinct issues, such as sulphate expansion. One particularly serious issue is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Kingswood Construction Ltd, Rear Of 20 Gilbert Rd, Kingswood, Bristol, BS15 1RE on 0117-960 4261 for a quote for repair work.

Iver home purchasers may need to consider that a number of styles are used in properties built throughout the ages, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we check rainwater goods? Could damaged rainwater goods lower the property value?

Both in Iver, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which wet weather has on homes in Iver is ignored by house purchasers. If you have only visited the property in warm weather, issues may have been hidden, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Luckily, problems with drains are usually easy to fix.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it the right choice to opt for a full structural survey before acquiring an abandoned sixties house in Iver?

Structural surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. When planning to buy an altered house - such as a poor condition Iver house, this is now the correct RICS survey to commission. Once a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts, the RICS surveyors report will be emailed and posted to the buyer running through any crucial details concerning the materials used for the construction of the house. There are several limitations with any survey insofar as a qualified surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Iver building, an example being the removing roof space contents.
