External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get London brick repair advice for the house in Colliers Wood we're going to buy? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-walled Colliers Wood converted property can indicate diverse problems, such as frost damaged pointing. Such defects will be discussed in the report, with repair advice also supplied. One particularly serious issue is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. For more information, contact a local builder, Edwards A J of 3 Forth Way, Halesowen, B62 9PR on 07976 753195.

Buyers in Colliers Wood should consider that a good selection of methods and styles have been used for centuries. For instance, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Colliers Wood surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a garage)

A Homebuyer Report in Colliers Wood will include a valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will use experience of property in Colliers Wood and other things relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Your Colliers Wood surveyor will also consider style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any serious legal issues e.g. Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer during the legal process.

Additional local area conjectures, such as use of parking or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like flood plains, also being considered.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Colliers Wood.

Stucco is actually just smooth type of render. Typically stucco render is applied to red brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is highly attractive and was common on some Victorian houses. Stucco is often problematic and Colliers Wood Home Buyers Suveys commonly report issues for example, water trapped under paint (assuming painted). Other potential problems could be when dampness below sills that causes the render detaching. Fixing Stucco problems can be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.
