HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Petersham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Petersham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Petersham property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to pay attention to when purchasing an older property? What effect will the home's wooden structure have on regular maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can sometimes be an issue. Houses showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. If you are uncertain, speak to your surveyor for further advice.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Petersham and are looking for buildings with brick chimney. What directions can a surveyor in Petersham offer? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Petersham brick-walled structures can be subject to a number of issues. An especially severe issue is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Excel Brickwork Ltd should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01376 563015 or Home Farm/Mill La, Feering, Colchester, CO5 9RG.

Brick-build property are used in properties built throughout the ages, leading to a range of courses arrangements and colours.

Window frame

On a Petersham HomeBuyer Report, what could a a green light rating mean for windows?

Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey.

For a Petersham home, one issue is any broken glass windows. 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.
