HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Barnsley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Barnsley property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Barnsley property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Barnsley and are looking for a 30s house built with Sussex bond brick. What warnings would a Barnsley property surveyor give? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed property in Barnsley feature several advantages, but they can also be subject to a number of issues, from erosion to spalling. For instance, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and should be taken very seriously. For more information, contact a local builder, Potter Brickwork Ltd of Nortex Business Centre/105 Chorley Old Rd, Bolton, BL1 3AS on 01204 465530.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
