HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Castle Bromwich and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Castle Bromwich property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Castle Bromwich property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Castle Bromwich Homebuyers Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a stucco coated regency home in Castle Bromwich that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is a type of solid render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick to form a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly aesthetic and was often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Castle Bromwich Homebuyer Reports sometimes focus on any number of problems for instance damp trapped beneath paint

Another example of problems associated with stucco can possibly result be when moisture gets in below DPCs that causes the render detaching. Remedying problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Castle Bromwich and are looking for a 30s home with Diagonal bond walls. What suggestions can the surveyor make?

Brick-constructed residences in Castle Bromwich feature several advantages, but they can also show signs of considerable issues. These can include efflorescence or spalling. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey. A problem regularly identified is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Williams Derek may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01782 510490 or Poolside Cottage/Judgefield La, Brown Edge, Stoke-On-Trent, ST6 8UG.

Brick-constructed property may be found throughout England and Wales, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques. As an example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.

If the Castle Bromwich surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a concern of an asbestos fireplace in existence at the flat. Why would there be asbestos and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials such as fire doors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in duct connectors.

All forms including white are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace it. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Castle Bromwich HomeBuyer report. They will note the risk of asbestos and should inform you of the options.
