HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Tidworth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tidworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer comprehensive details of the Tidworth property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does heavy rainfall have on a home in Tidworth? Are repairs going to be expensive?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which rain has on Tidworth property is ignored. One indication that drainage are blocked is mildew in the attic. Poor drainage can lead to hazardous mould.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix if dealt with quickly. Where this is disregarded, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons for choosing a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys no longer exist anymore and the Building Survey has now superseded it. If buying a modified house e.g. an extended house, the Building Survey is now the most appropriate home survey to go for. Two to three days after the surveyor has carried out a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the surveyor's formal report is emailed (pdf format) and posted to you detailing in depth and important insight on the materials used for the construction of the house. There are several limitations with the survey as a RICS surveyor wont be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the Tidworth property for example undoing electrical fittings.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Dutch bond brick on this Victorian terrace is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-walled Tidworth buildings can suffer from distinct issues, including frost damage and sulphate attack. A defect requiring immediate attention is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Trystan Jones should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at Steading Cottage, Eyemouth, TD14 5LR or 07912 696243.

Brick-build property have been used across the country for centuries, leading to a range of courses arrangements and colours.
