HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Lyneham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Lyneham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations on the property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Lyneham property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Lyneham, and think we saw signs of insects in the hallway - What can we do?

Buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. Regrettably, pest problems can seriously reduce the value of a property and carry serious health risks. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not

spot them until moving in. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 17th Century barn conversion. What impact will the wooden structure have on maintenance?

Vernacular architecture can create issues for homeowners, and Lyneham houses featuring traditional methods can be costly to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Lyneham area, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to investigate drainage? Can damaged drainage decrease our property's value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However rain and the effect it can have on a property are rarely considered properly by home buyers. If you have only been to the house in on a sunny day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Poor drainage can lead to hazardous mould.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix if dealt with quickly.However, the damage caused, where left untreated, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
