HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Stonehouse and which one 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 Stonehouse property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Stonehouse property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the property in Stonehouse we're buying, but we are not certain. Do we need a residential surveyor?

Any questions about pests affecting a Stonehouse house may not be asked by the lawyer. This issue should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to pest problems can include use of poison and removal of infected furniture.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home. What problems must we watch out for, and what does the survey cover?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Problems which impact stone-built Stonehouse properties can vary greatly, with issues like delaminated render being quote common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Stonehouse properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used around doors and window frames. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Moreton C Cullimore (Gravels) Ltd, 47 London Road, Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL5 2AU for details. Call 01453 765381 for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick on this Tudor house needs work. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-built Stonehouse buildings demonstrate several benefits over structures built with irregular stone. Unfortunately, they also suffer from both minor and serious issues.
