HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Wellesbourne and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Wellesbourne property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Wellesbourne property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Wellesbourne House Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when purchasing an old building in Wellesbourne? What effect will the construction have on maintenance?

For houses in Wellesbourne built before the 20th Century, age can sometimes be an issue. Wellesbourne homes built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. This may make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential. Speak to your Wellesbourne surveyor for more information. Erected between 1429 and 1453, 2 School Road in Wellesbourne is a traditional property of the time.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us at our old property - What aspects of the roof will be considered?

This is often asked by buyers in Wellesbourne who know that homes can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems, such as ponding. From roof battens to sheeting, every element of the roof should be investigated. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Roof maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick chimney repair advice for the home in Wellesbourne we are buying? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Wellesbourne brick-walled houses can experience various issues and defects, such as horizontal cracking. One serious matter is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Contact Brook Terry for a repairs estimate at 07890 388290 or 32 Gellideg Isaf Rise, Maesycwmmer, Hengoed, CF82 7RB.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornate Della Robbia bond paving. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
