HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Albrighton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Albrighton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Albrighton property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need English Garden Wall bond guidelines for upkeep, can the surveyor help?

Brick buildings be affected by several common problems. The property surveyor would usually include these, with feedback. One particularly serious issue is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Buildrite Cannock Ltd at 1 Linwood Drive, Hednesford, Cannock, WS12 4SA should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01543 871668.

As an example, sailor bond or Dutch bond may be used in the construction of buildings in Albrighton. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we need to look into when intending to buy an extended house in Albrighton near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Albrighton surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any connection may have on the property. Prices is typically higher because of them being unspoilt. However many areas have been neglected and are in disrepair for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Property surveyors are expected report whether the property might be so designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Unsympathetic modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser. Cheethams are based in Church Farm, Shropshire, Shropshire, ST19 5AP will be able to give you some pointers. Tel: 01785 714761

Damaged Render

What will my Surveyor examine on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Albrighton which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a smooth and flat solid render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Albrighton Homebuyer Reports frequently highlight issues such as when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks

Another example of problems may result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Remedying problems can be difficult and costly as renderers are becoming rarer.
