HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Wilton and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Wilton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Wilton property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Wilton Homebuyers Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a converted barn and the vendor has suggested that it has been partially constructed with Clipsham stone. Are there specific related issues to bear in mind?

From Stoke Hall Sandstone to Lees Endcliffe Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects affecting stone-built Wilton properties can vary, displacement being relatively common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Wilton properties, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. 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, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I would be advised to check out if purchasing a converted flat in Wilton in a conservation area?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local authority. Surveyors in Wilton must possess local knowledge of local factors and the effect they have on the property. The value of homes will likely be higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of them retaining original features. However a large number have fallen into shoddy condition e.g. out of keeping extensions

Property surveyors will tell you if the property could be classified as such and Section I of a Wilton Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by your solicitor. Unapproved changes to the building may be reported but these are really more a investigated by your legal adviser. Wilsons Solicitors Llp are based in Steynings House, Wiltshire, Wiltshire, SP2 7RJ might be happy to advise further. Tel: 01722 412412

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there could be loose asbestos ceiling material affecting the property. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. boards around radiators. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in artex.

All forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to displace asbestos and professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Wilton home survey. Your Wilton surveyor should mention the risk of asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.
