HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Ruskington and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Ruskington property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Ruskington property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay a bit more money for a full structural survey when considering a flat in Ruskington?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey. You would be best advised to opt for the Building Survey for the flat you are contemplating. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid century or later unmodified Ruskington flat of typical building materials. You should be aware of certain limitations exist with any residential survey insofar as RICS chartered surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the flat for example, or comment on non-permanent out buildings. Additionally flat conversions involve shared parts of the building which cannot always be accessed. meaning a surveyor can only check the area within identifiable boundary of the flat,, he may advise on communal parts of the property e.g.

the drains. For more information and a breakdown of Building Surveys and HomeBuyer reports look at here.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Ruskington, what suggestions can a Ruskington surveyor make for properties built with stretcher bond walls?

Ruskington brick-walled apartments can be affected by distinct issues, including efflorescence and spalling. An especially severe issue is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Cooney T Brickwork Ltd at 37 Harlesden Gdns, London, NW10 4EY on 07930 718071.

Brick-constructed property can be found across Ruskington, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques. For instance, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows.

If the Ruskington 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

I am worried about bugs in the property in Ruskington we plan to buy. Do we need a house surveyor?

Property in Ruskington are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for vermin may include professional cleaning and removal or excision of affected timber.
