HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Upton Park property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Upton Park property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a sixties house I am meaning to buy, it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; does the surveyor go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Upton Park Home Buyers Survey your surveyor will typically comment on the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition.

This should include a non invasive look-over of exposed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other possible problems relating to things like the whereabouts of the fuse board or verifying the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should form part of the survey in Upton Park. Examining the evidence of any recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property should be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property in Upton Park and the estate agent has stated that it has been built with Cotswold stone. Are there any major defects that we should be aware of?

Purchasers in Upton Park should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects affecting stone-built property can vary, deteriorating bedding being relatively common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Maintenance tips include repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Dutch bond brick on this Edwardian terrace looks in bad shape. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-built structures demonstrate several benefits, but they will also experience considerable issues. This could be anything from cracks to crypto-florescence. For instance, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and should be taken very seriously. Midgley C should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 7 Higham Rd, Wainscott, Rochester, ME3 8BE or 01634 712477.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
