HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Langport and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Langport property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Langport property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice why not obtain a Langport House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we investigate downspouts? Can damaged downspouts decrease our property's value?

I find it odd that the impact rainfall can have on properties is not given enough thought. As an example, a waterlogged garden could mean that the downspouts are at risk. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying slightly more for a full structural survey when buying Victorian townhouse ?

Building Survey has taken over the Structural Survey following its reclassification in 2010 by RICS. Select a Building Survey for the house you mention. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a mid century or later unmodified Langport house of standard construction materials and methods.

You should be aware of certain provisos exist with any survey as a local surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the house for example, or investigate the internal state of any flues.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Langport and are looking for a property constructed with rat-trap bond walls. What recommendations will a Langport surveyor make? What impact do Langport environmental conditions have?

Brick apartments suffer from several common problems, such as weathering. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with feedback. One frequently reported defect is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Lucas Steve should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 44 Victoria Road, Waunarlwydd, Swansea, SA5 4SY or 01792 538950.

Langport home purchasers may need to consider that a range of techniques may be found throughout England and Wales, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
