HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Mayfield and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Mayfield property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Mayfield property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Mayfield, what input does a surveyor in Mayfield give for houses built with Flemish bond walls? Is age a factor?

Mayfield conversions with brick walls can show signs of both minor and serious issues, from moisture damage to sulphate expansion. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report and suggest potential remedies. A serious 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. Brickwallsstonewalls should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01761 420751 or 4 Frome Rd, Radstock, BA3 3PW.

For instance, Monk bond or sailor bond are both used in Mayfield conversions. Consider renegotiating the price of the Mayfield property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Mayfield, and think we saw signs of pests in the study - What should we do?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our house surveyor search for possible flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of property owners in Mayfield and across the country, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before flooding occurs. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may recommend maintenance.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house in Mayfield is at risk.
