HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Mere and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Mere property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Mere property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would need to be wary of when intending to buy a house in Mere near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Surveyors in Mere must possess knowledge of local considerations and any connection they have on the property and its value. Property Prices will likely be inflated which is down to conservation areas resisting change.

RICS surveyors are expected advise you whether the property is/might be is designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by your conveyancer. Out of keeping changes to the property will also be reported but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer. Brodrick-Barker & Co are a local firm situated at Caerglow House, Wiltshire, Wiltshire, SP3 6JP will be happy to advise further. Tel: 01747 871 600

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor examine on a stucco Victorian house in Mere that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really a sort of flat finish render. Normally it is layered over underlying brick that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is very aesthetic and was often applied to Georgian houses. it can be problematic and Surveyors frequently discover any number of problems for instance horizontal hairline cracking that describes the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems may be when moisture gets in below windows that causes large areas of detachment. Resolving Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls create upkeep problems? Are there specific matters to bear in mind?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of properties. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like delaminated or cracked paintwork will vary with the particular type of stone. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Mere are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. W Collins (Chicksgrove Quarry Ltd), Upper Chicksgrove, Tisbury, Salisbury, SP3 6LY, quarrying Limestone, for details. Call 01747 871144 for more information.
