HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Capel St Mary and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Capel St Mary property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Capel St Mary property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a house with Beer stone walls. Which major defects should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Hall Dale Sandstone to Totternhoe Limestone. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion of pointing joints. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Purchasers renovating Capel St Mary houses should be aware that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. To source stone quarried in Capel St Mary, you can contact local suppliers.

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when purchasing a house built in around 1780 in Capel St Mary? Will maintenance costs be higher?

A building's age can sometimes be an issue. Capel St Mary property built using traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with your property surveyor for further advice.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look out for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in Capel St Mary that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a kind of solid render. Normally it is layered over brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco render is highly appealing and is common on some Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Capel St Mary surveyors commonly highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when movement of the underlying wall causes cracks. Other issues might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads above such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Resolving problems can be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.
