HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Poundbury and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Poundbury property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Poundbury property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Poundbury and are looking for a 80s property built with Fletton brick. What advice would you give?

Brick-built Poundbury structures do benefit from many advantages over structures built with irregular stone. Unfortunately, they also show signs of various issues and defects, ranging from sulphate attack to moisture damage. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. A local

builder should be able to assist. Call R K S Brickwork, 78 Station La, Hornchurch, RM12 6NA on 07811 954880 for a quote for repair work.

For example, header bond or sailor bond are both used in Poundbury structures.

If the Poundbury surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a Poundbury property. Do we need a residential surveyor?

Purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious, for example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to insect infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. Your RICS surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor report on the state of the gas flues?

The surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) for instance, as well as gas affiliated installations, for instance flue/chimney maintenance. The fittings will not however be taken off. Most people are aware that gas can be dangerous and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.
