HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Wendover and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wendover property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the Wendover property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Wendover property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Wendover - Which issues relating to the roof will be reported on?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Wendover. Many residential properties can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes, like cracked and loose slates or tiles. Every element should be checked, e.g. slates. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a contractor in Wendover a quote for any suggested work.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home. What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Purchasers in Wendover should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects affecting stone-built properties in Wendover can vary, delaminated or cracked paintwork being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to properties in Wendover, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

House Prices

We are would like to acquiring a house in Wendover (HP22) which is being marketed for £431, 277. What factors will Wendover surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Wendover ?
