HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Wroughton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Wroughton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Wroughton property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a converted barn and the agent has informed us that it has been built with West Cornwall granite. Are there any major defects that we should be aware of?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Westwood Ground Limestone. Defects affecting stone-built property can vary, delaminated or cracked paintwork being relatively common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Repair advice often includes. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

House Prices

There is a property in SN4 on with a local agent for £92, 700. What factors will surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Wroughton ?

As an indicator, one can try to look at values achieved in Wroughton at the same time for similar flats.

Chimney stacks

In the HomeBuyer Report, what effect can a green light rating have on chimney stacks?

Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed, but maintenance may still be necessary. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give buyers in Wroughton a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike some more complex survey reports. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm to what extent each defect requires attention.

Possible defects are inspected visually with binoculars where appropriate. An apartment may not need such an inspection. A sloping chimney cap is one defect applicable to this section.
