The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Cornhill On Tweed property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the Cornhill On Tweed building we plan to buy. What should we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to a serious infestation can include traps or removal of infected furniture. Your surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco home in Cornhill On Tweed that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is a form of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. It is very beautiful and is found on Georgian buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Cornhill On Tweed commonly detail any number of problems such as when it is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems could result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Fixing problems with stucco can be difficult as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming rarer.
