HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Murton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Murton property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Murton property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this Murton residence is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed flats in Murton feature several advantages over stone-built property, but they can also be affected by distinct issues. For instance, sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall and should be taken very seriously. Contact SG Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 01389 382167 or 60 Hillend Cr, Clydebank, G81 6HN.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons in upgrading to the full structural survey in Murton as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report when looking into a substantially modified cottage?

Albeit frequently referred to as Structural Surveys by house buyers, they have been reclassified as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a post fifties unmodified home of normal construction materials. The Building Survey is definitely the proper type of survey for the house mentioned. Subsequent to a thorough survey of the accessible parts a written report (pdf and written copy) will be dispatched to the prospective purchaser going through any relevant information concerning the materials used for the construction of the building.

There are a few limitations with the survey to consider as a surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Murton house, an example being lifting up fitted carpets. This page for more detail on HomeBuyer Reports and Building Surveys.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Murton, and think we saw signs of pests in the lounge. What can we do?

Any questions about pests affecting a Murton building may not be asked by the lawyer. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Remedies to an infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. If you believe moths, or any pest, may be present, request that your home surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
