Which HomeBuyers Survey should I choose for my prospective house purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Wool

    A Homebuyer Report should be selected if buying a home built from conventional building materials such as brick and tile, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Wool

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Wool) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS qualified surveyor and is more exhaustive. Select this when buying a non standard e.g. stone slab roof or older buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Wool

    This is an impartial valuation . This is usually chosen by cash purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Wool and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Wool property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Wool property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Wool Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish bond maintenance tips, can the surveyor help? What impact do Wool environmental conditions have?

Brick-constructed properties in Wool do benefit from many advantages over stone-built property, but they can also be affected by distinct issues, from efflorescence to spalling. The house surveyor should report on these. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Pullen Brickwork

Ltd, Frome Farm/Badminton Rd, Old Sodbury, Bristol, BS37 6LU on 01454 319822 for a quote for repair work.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Wool. Will access to the building's roof be an issue?

Wool homes with no other major issues will suffer damage to the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. decking. The RICS surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Wool, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing contractor in Wool with positive reviews can provide a quote. Speak to Crumbleholme Builders of 2/Rectory Cottages, Warmwell, Dorchester, DT2 8HF on 01305 854876 for more information.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does high levels of rainfall have on a property in Wool?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rain has on Wool buildings is overlooked by house purchasers. For example, rotten roofing elements may indicate that the downspouts are under performing. Blocked rainwater goods can result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

Whether buying in Wool or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
