HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Wanborough and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Wanborough property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Wanborough property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Wanborough, what directions can a Wanborough surveyor offer for a 80s residence with rat-trap bond walls?

Wanborough apartments with brick walls can suffer from various issues and defects. This could be anything from crumbling mortar to weathering. One particularly serious issue is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Dulieu Builders may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01494 812954 or 14 Hazlemere Rd, Penn, High Wycombe, HP10 8AD.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to investigate downspouts? Also, if there is a problem, will they be costly to fix?

I find it odd that the effect which heavy rainfall has on Wanborough homes is not given enough thought. As an example, spalling on walls around drainage will likely suggest that the rainwater goods are a cause for concern.

Luckily, guttering issues are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If not maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about an infestation on the road. How do we investigate further?

Scare stories about house vermin are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as bed bugs as minor annoyances. This matter should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to pests can include destruction of tainted materials. If you strongly suspect an issue with bed bugs, or any pest, speak to your home surveyor
