HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Sneyd Park and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Sneyd Park property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Sneyd Park property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any factors I need to verify when purchasing a home in Sneyd Park inside a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Sneyd Park need to have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any effect they have on the home. House prices are usually enhanced due to conservation areas being in good order.

RICS surveyors are trained to advise you whether the building looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented modifications to the property may be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Sneyd Park and are looking for a 30s residence constructed with Fletton brick. What directions can a property surveyor in Sneyd Park offer?

Brick-built Sneyd Park structures demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also be affected by distinct issues. This could be anything from spalling to weathering. The RICS surveyor will mention these. A serious concern is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Sealey M J Bricklaying Ltd, P O Box 3098, Swindon, SN2 9BL on 01793 488453 for a quote for repair work.

Brick-build property feature in construction throughout Sneyd Park, leading to a number of popular courses and methods. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Sneyd Park?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that heavy rain and the effect it can have on Sneyd Park houses are often overlooked by purchasers. If you have investigated the home in dry weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that gutters are a cause for concern include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage.

In most cases, these defects are quite easy to repair, if identified early, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
