HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Breaston and which one is the cheapest?

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

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

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Breaston property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Breaston Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What advice would a Breaston property surveyor give for houses built with Fletton brick?

Brick converted property in Breaston will show signs of various issues and defects, from DPC failure to crumbling mortar. One serious matter is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Ministry Of Brickwork should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 78/78/Beaumont Hill, Darlington, DL1 3ND or 0844-875 4019.

Brick-build property have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, leading to a range of styles and techniques, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Breaston. Can a RICS surveyor inquire into indications of flooding damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a property in Breaston in an at-risk area may be impacted.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property generate high upkeep costs for the buyer? Are there specific defects to bear in mind?

From Hopton Wood Limestone to Lees Endcliffe Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including erosion affect many stone-walled homes in Breaston. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
