Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a cottage in Braunton. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Many purchasers hope to own a unique or characterful property. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Structures showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging. Discuss this with the surveyor for more detail. Erected between 1475 and 1499, St Brannock, pews in Braunton is a traditional church of the time.

House Prices

Is £253, 467 the right sort of amount to pay for a property in EX33 for and what considerations will a Braunton RICS surveyor evaluate when carrying out a RICS survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect the price of property for example existence of building regulations for modifications or the number of bathrooms. It can help to set against flat values achieved in the nearby area for similar properties. The mean flat price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £225, 667, which is £27, 800 less than the selling price and the flat/house average was £272, 286. 49, Caen View, Braunton, North Devon, Devon, EX33 1FE a leasehold flat sold for £145, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get a formal home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as part of the service.

A chartered surveyor will go to the property in addition to considering the multiple area influences that can impact on property values.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look out for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Braunton.

Stucco is actually a kind of smooth solid render. Typically it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to an even finish. The finish is very beautiful and is found on Georgian properties. It is very like plaster and mortar. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors frequently discover defects such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Re-coating problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
