HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Lydney and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Lydney property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Lydney property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Lydney, and can a Lydney home surveyor check for any water damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and owning a home in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in question is in danger, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it necessary to spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to purchasing a poor condition, eighties purpose built flat close to Lydney?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as the Building Survey. If buying a modified Lydney flat e.g. a dilapidated flat - this is the most appropriate RICS survey. The formal report details full and important details concerning the buildings construction and uses and any important technical details a thorough inspection. There are one or two limitations with a Building Survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Lydney building, an example being the removing the contents of cupboards. Additionally flats typically make it harder to survey the building meaning a surveyor is only authorised scrutinise the flat itself although he/she exist other sections of the property for example shared staircases. For more details and a comparison of survey types see here.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Lydney. Is there any English Garden Wall bond upkeep suggestions we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed conversions in Lydney do benefit from many advantages over timber-built homes, but they can also suffer from numerous defects, from inadequate damp-proofing to signs of movement. An issue of particular concern is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Ace Brickwork, 45 Wembley Way, Stockton-On-Tees, TS18 4AJ on 07504 004342 for a quote for repair work.

For example, Flemish bond or shiner bond are both used in Lydney conversions.

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