HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Wareham and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wareham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Wareham property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Wareham? If there is work that needs to be done, will they be troublesome to fix?

Both in Wareham, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which rain has on homes in Wareham is overlooked. If you have investigated the home in dry conditions, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that gutters are damaged include mildew in the attic. Luckily, guttering issues are usually easy to repair, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

House Prices

There is a detached property in BH20 on for £278, 740. What things does a Wareham surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Wareham ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on house prices like the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the direction the house faces. As an indicator, one can try to consider values achieved in Wareham at the same time for similar properties.

This means house prices completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £289, 740, which is £11, 000 more than the asking price (£285, 140 was the blended house/flat average). 3 Old Chalk Pit, Shellee, Rye Hill, Bere Regis, Wareham, Purbeck, Dorset, BH20 7LP a detached property was purchased for £210, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get a professional house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A professional qualified RICS surveyor will attend the property as well as considering the wealth of items that might affect values.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1830s converted barn with stone walls. Which related issues should we consider?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Naylor Hill Sandstone to Hopton Wood Limestone. Defects such as delaminated or cracked paintwork affect many stone-walled Wareham property. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

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.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, contact a Wareham expert, such as Lewis Quarries, 11 Church Knowle, Church Knowle, Wareham, BH20 5NG (Phone: 01929 439499).
