HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Lytchett Matravers and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Lytchett Matravers property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Lytchett Matravers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in the past - Will access to the roof of the house be a problem?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by buyers in Lytchett Matravers who are aware that property can often hide roof maintenance problems. From valley gutters to gables, every element of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing specialist in Lytchett Matravers for the job itself. Speak to Dawe of Longhow, Dogdean, Wimborne, BH21 4HA on 01202 881150 for details.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Lytchett Matravers home and am worried about the implications of clay soil. Does a HomeBuyer Report discuss soil composition the report?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a home's foundations can create difficulties. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. For example, widening cracks may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Lytchett Matravers, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The English bond walls on this Victorian terrace is badly worn. What are the possible consequences?

Lytchett Matravers conversions with brick walls can be affected by considerable issues. Your surveyor in Lytchett Matravers should report on these, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. For more information, contact a local builder, Bansal Building Ltd of 78 Ilford La, Ilford, IG1 2LA on 020 8514 4316.

One example is Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
