HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Muxton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Muxton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Muxton property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a home partially constructed Wooton stone. Which major related issues should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

Ranging from Portland Cap Limestone to Westwood Ground Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include staining.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Repair advice often includes clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds. If you are planning to renovate,

consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, contact a local stonemason or specialist. For example, Fireplace Ltd, 19 Chetwynd End, Newport, TF10 7JJ (Phone: 01952 811443) may help.

Traditionally built property

What should we investigate when buying an older property in Muxton? What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Some buyers in Muxton would like to own property with real personality. For houses in Muxton built before the 20th Century, age, however, can worry purchasers. Properties featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for Muxton listed buildings, Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may be required. This may make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Muxton, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the property's roof be hard to organise?

Residences in Muxton in otherwise fine condition can still be subject to problems like cracked and loose slates or tiles. From tie beams to decking, every element of the roof will be taken into account. Factors like a poor asphalt covering are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Re-flashing and re-tiling, among other aspects of roof repair, can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
