HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Aylesford and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Aylesford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Aylesford property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that the had been a problem with mould, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What advice would the home surveyor give in their report?

This is often asked by home buyers who know that homes could feature roofing problems, such as. From collar beams to dormer windows, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Roof upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing

work is required, a local roofing specialist can provide one. Call Profiled Contracts & Design Ltd of 15 High St, Aylesford, ME20 7AX on 01622 791931 for more information.

Damaged Render

What will the Aylesford Surveyor look out for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Aylesford.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Normally stucco is applied to underlying red brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The finish is very grand in appearance and was found on Victorian and Georgian houses. Stucco is very similar to plaster in its nature. it can be problematic and Surveyors sometimes detail any number of problems for instance when stucco is exposed to driving rain which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems may result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Remedying problems with stucco may be expensive as craftsmen are becoming rarer.
