HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Chorlton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chorlton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Chorlton property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Chorlton House Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What will the Chorlton Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco coated home in Chorlton.

Stucco is really just a specific type of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to red brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. The coating is very attractive and is often found on Georgian buildings. It is very like any other render. it can be problematic and Chorlton Home Buyers Suveys commonly highlight defects such as when it is faced with driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues might result from

the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Resolving problems can be difficult and costly as craftsmen are becoming harder to find.

Chimney stacks

On a Chorlton HomeBuyer Report what does 'E1' refer to?

An example of this is a chimney which is noticeably leaning. These elements should be examined if the roof is difficult to access.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the impact on the property individual defects may have.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish Diagonal bond repair tips, can a Chorlton surveyor help?

Chorlton houses with brick walls can show signs of considerable issues. The surveyor can investigate these as part of their report along with recommendations. One problem often found is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Bainbridge G Ltd should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 023 9258 5314 or 12 Anthony Grove, Gosport, PO12 4AS.

Chorlton home purchasers may need to consider that a broad range of techniques are found in many homes built in this country, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. Consider renegotiating the price of the Chorlton property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
