HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Tring and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Tring property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Tring property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Tring. What recommendations will a property surveyor in Tring make? Does brick decay faster in Tring weather?

Brick-constructed apartments in Tring do benefit from many advantages, but they can also experience a range of defects, such as crypto-florescence. One serious matter is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. D & S at 3 Longdale Dr, South Elmsall, Pontefract, WF9 2AY on 01977 640327.

Buyers in Tring should consider that a number of styles have been used for centuries. One example is Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property in Tring. Which matters should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

From Swaledale Fossil Limestone to Red St.Bees Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Problems which impact stone-built properties can vary greatly, with issues like displacement being quote common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local properties, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. There are two kinds of lime-based mortar, hydraulic and non-hydraulic. It essential that the type of mortar be identified before any work be attempted. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we should on guard for when intending to buy a converted house in Tring inside a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Tring must possess local knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection may have on the home and its value. Property Prices tends to be more than prices outside the area due to them resisting change. However many are falling into disrepair for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors are trained to report if the property looks to be within a conservation area and Section I of your Tring Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.
