HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Wolvey and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Wolvey property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Wolvey property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the reason in spending a bit more on the full structural survey if purchasing a extended terraced home in Wolvey as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently referred to as the Full Structural Survey, this survey is now defunct and as it has been given a new title by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. If planning to buy an unusual Wolvey house like an older house, it is now the most suitable property survey. It should outline relevant professional advice about the property's construction materials on top of any technical details after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house.

There will be one or two restrictions with any survey to bear in mind insofar as your surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Wolvey house e.g. removing secured hatches. External buildings will also be reported on on the Wolvey property survey.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property in Wolvey create issues for owners? Are there any defects that need to be investigated?

Damp proof course issues can often cause problems for Wolvey homes with stone walls. Defects affecting stone-built Wolvey homes can vary, staining being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Shawell Quarry, Gibbet Lane, Shawell, Lutterworth, Leicestershire, LE17 6AA, which quarries Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01788 574841 for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Wolvey, what input does a surveyor in Wolvey give for homes with rat-trap bond walls? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed buildings in Wolvey demonstrate several benefits over buildings using regular cut stone, but they can also be affected by various issues and defects. For example, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and may require immediate attention. Conner T Brickwork Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 30 Burwell Rd, London, E10 7QG or 07961 513134.

For example, English garden wall bond or header bond may be used in the construction of buildings in Wolvey. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
