HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Brompton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brompton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Brompton property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my Brompton Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco regency house in Brompton that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a type of render. Commonly it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian properties for example. it can be prone to defect and Brompton Home Buyers Suveys sometimes detail defects such as horizontal visible cracking revealing the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems may be when moisture

beneath sills that results in the render detaching requiring raking back and reapplying. Re-applying problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a maisonette near to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include structurally instability .

Surveyors will consider structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Kensington and Chelsea Local Authority and advise you .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a property with a converted attic in Brompton , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Will access to the roof be a problem?

Property in Brompton that are otherwise ideal could feature roofing problems, such as. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from roof battens to clay tiles. The property surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing specialist in Brompton for the job itself.
