HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Ombersley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Ombersley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Ombersley property's state of repair as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects - Is a Property Survey advisable?

Buyers in Ombersley should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Regrettably, pest problems can seriously reduce the value of a property and affect the health of residents. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are getting a maisonette in Ombersley, does the property surveyor check signs of flood damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record; sensible owners and buyers in Ombersley are right to consider precautions. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the current owner, but this information may not be accurate.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The handmade bricks on this property in Ombersley has deteriorated - what should we do?

Brick-built houses do benefit from many advantages, but they will also indicate considerable issues, from crypto-florescence to vertical cracking. An issue of particular concern is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. For more information, contact a local builder, Barnard K of 14 Freda Corbett Cl, London, SE15 6UN on 020 7635 8805.

For home purchasers in Ombersley seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks.
