HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Kirby Muxloe and which is cheaper?

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

If the Kirby Muxloe property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works on the Kirby Muxloe property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Kirby Muxloe property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Kirby Muxloe. Is there a flood risk, and will the building survey look for indications of water damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and house purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The HomeBuyer Report may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs. The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical

flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we investigate downspouts? We're concerned about replacement costs.

I find it odd that the effect which rain has on your home is not given more thought by buyers. As an example, mildew or damp in the roof will likely suggest that the gutters are blocked, and may lead to overflowing or blocked sewage. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Monk bond upkeep guidance - can a property surveyor in Kirby Muxloe assist?

Brick-constructed houses in Kirby Muxloe do benefit from many advantages, but they can also experience numerous defects, including DPC failure and horizontal cracking. One particularly serious issue is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Cooney T Brickwork Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 07930 718071 or 37 Harlesden Gdns, London, NW10 4EY.

A range of styles and techniques of brick building can be found across Kirby Muxloe. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
