HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Malmesbury and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Malmesbury property is a flat, 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 make significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Malmesbury property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we investigate drainage? Also, if there are problems, will they be troublesome to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rain can have on buildings in Malmesbury is usually overlooked. As an example, spalling masonry indicate that the drainage systems are under performing.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair fairly cheaply. Where this is not cared for, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a house and the estate agent has suggested that it has been built with Forest of Dean stone. Which problems should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Ranging from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Farmington Stone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues including erosion of pointing joints affect many stone-walled property in Malmesbury.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.
