    The RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Moreton) will also be carried out by a RICS qualified surveyor and is more thorough. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. timber wall buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Moreton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Moreton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Moreton property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Window frame

In a Moreton HomeBuyer Report what effect can a an amber light rating have on 'E5 - Windows' ?

In Moreton, examples include lintels above doors that are sagging or missing. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. An 'amber' condition rating of 2 implies that some repair work is needed to arrest further decay. This may not be urgent, however.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this Georgian house looks in bad shape. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed residential property in Moreton do benefit from many advantages, but they can also indicate several common problems, such as erosion. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Rogers A W may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0117-977 3379 or 28 Trelawney Park, Bristol, BS4 4HD.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows, to the rare, such English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Moreton. Can a HomeBuyer Report check for flooding damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Met Office), and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the residents, but this information may not be accurate.
