HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Bolton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Bolton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Bolton property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Kentish Rag stone-built structures be hard to upkeep. Are there specific factors to consider?

From Totternhoe Limestone to Brown Woodkirk Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects such as cracks affect many stone-walled houses in Bolton. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include replacing missing or badly worn stones.

To source a specific stone material, speak to a Bolton specialist, including Fireplace Warehouse, 115 Chorley Old Rd, Bolton, BL1 3AS.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a farmstead in Bolton. Will the structure's age be a problem?

Some buyers would like to own a house with personality, like a Victorian home. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can be problematic. Bolton structures featuring traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. As an example of Post Medieval building, Hall I' Th' Wood in Bolton was constructed in around 1601.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will your Chartered Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco regency home in Bolton which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is a form of render. Usually it is layered over brick to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is very attractive and is common on some Victorian homes. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can highlight defects for example trapped water leading to internal damp problems. Other potential problems may include attack from salts sucked out of bricks. Fixing problems can be expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
