HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Chelmsley Wood and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Chelmsley Wood property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Chelmsley Wood property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Chelmsley Wood Surveyor be focused on, on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Chelmsley Wood that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just a specific type of render. Normally stucco is layered over underlying brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is very grand in appearance and is common on some Regency properties. it can be prone

to defect and Chelmsley Wood Building Surveys can detail defects e.g. moisture trapped beneath paint (assuming painted). Other potential problems can possibly result be when moisture below windows that results in large areas of detachment. Remedying problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Sussex bond advice, can a surveyor in Chelmsley Wood help?

Chelmsley Wood buildings with brick walls can experience several common problems, such as weathering. For example, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and may require immediate attention. Contact Streamline for a repairs estimate at 01228 595590 or 4-6 Corporation Rd, Carlisle, CA3 8XB.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a coast house in Chelmsley Wood. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

The age of a structure can create difficulties for an owner. Structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to repair. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can create disruption for new owners. If you have doubts, speak to your chartered surveyor for further advice.
