HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Barton Le Clay and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Barton Le Clay property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Barton Le Clay property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Barton Le Clay Home Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons for conducting the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a un-loved bungalow?

Full Structural Surveys are now defunct as a new more technical survey which has been entitled the Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. Opt for a Building Survey if you are considering the property mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a 60 year old or less unmodified Barton Le Clay property of typical construction materials. Be aware that certain limitations exist with any survey as a surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the property or survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Barton Le Clay. Is there any London brick maintenance tips we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed residential property in Barton Le Clay demonstrate several benefits in comparison to other forms of building, but they can also be affected by various issues and defects, such as thermal movement. Your Barton Le Clay surveyor will cover these in his report, with repair advice also supplied. One frequently reported defect is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Faulkner C J & Sons, 2/Corner Cottage/Cryers Hill La, Cryers Hill, High Wycombe, HP15 6AA on 01494 712691 for a quote for repair work.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond, to the rare, such English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will a RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered home in Barton Le Clay that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just smooth type of solid render. Usually it is applied to brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is very appealing and is found on Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Barton Le Clay Home Buyers Suveys can highlight defects for example, when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the supporting significant loads above such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
