HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Biggin Hill and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Biggin Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Biggin Hill property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Biggin Hill House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What will the Biggin Hill Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Biggin Hill that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a sort of flat finish render. Normally stucco is applied to brick that sets to an even finish. The effect is very beautiful and was found on Regency homes. It is similar to plaster to apply. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Biggin Hill sometimes show defects e.g. when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-covering Stucco problems may be costly as renderers are becoming rarer.

House Prices

Is £628, 429 within the right sort of area price to be buying a detached house in TN16 for and what considerations will a surveyor allow for during a valuation ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on the price of property such as the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the standard of the bathroom/s. It may help to set against house values achieved in the area for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £642, 429, which is £14, 000 more than the asking price. Court Lodge Barn, London Road, Westerham, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN16 2DH a detached home sold for £925, 000 .

An impartial way to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Biggin Hill. Is there any brick guidelines for upkeep we should be aware of??

Brick Biggin Hill property will indicate several common problems, from inadequate damp-proofing to spalling. Your property surveyor would usually include these. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. For more information, contact a local builder, Illustrious Construction of 23/Manford Court/Manford Way, Chigwell, IG7 4DP on 07960 227640.

For example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
