HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Rayners Lane and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Rayners Lane property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Rayners Lane property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for English Garden Wall bond maintenance tips - can a Rayners Lane surveyor assist? Does render make a difference?

Brick-walled houses in Rayners Lane can suffer from various issues and defects, from inadequate damp-proofing to horizontal cracking. For instance, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and should be taken very seriously. VT Construction Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 21 Kellsboro Ave, Wroughton, Swindon, SN4 9HU or 01793 813286.

For home purchasers in Rayners Lane seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our surveyor look for flooding damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of owners in Rayners Lane and across the country, and the value of a property in Rayners Lane in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the house survey may recommend maintenance.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood warnings were found for Rayners Lane.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a sixties house I am intending to lease it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, will a Rayners Lane Homebuyer Report go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Rayners Lane Home Survey the surveyor should comment on the state of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This will include a visual view of the unconcealed parts of the wiring or fusebox on top of potential areas for concern such as inspecting the state of repair of fitted electrical appliances, for example storage heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of switch gear. A check for the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
