HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Warminster and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Warminster property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Warminster property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a flat close to Old Allotments Landfill Site on Barcroft and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous rubbish disposal. A huge number of sites affect 100, 000's people throughout the UK including Warminster. Concerns might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Surveyors will flag up structural defects linked to the site. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Wiltshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Deteriorated timber

In the HomeBuyer Report what are the usual a green light rating defects affecting 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements will be investigated. Bulging stucco render, for example, is included in Section E.

Green (condition rating 1) is the best possible assessment, and confirms that this part of the house or flat is in a good state. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular Warminster property, omitting sections as necessary.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor consider on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency home in Warminster that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact just dense render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is very beautiful and was common on some Regency houses. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water and hardens to a dense solid. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Warminster commonly reveal any number of problems for example trapped moisture resulting in damp problems which need attention

Another example of problems associated with stucco might involve sulphate attack from salts derived from wet brickwork. Remedying Stucco problems may be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting rarer.
