HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Cullompton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Cullompton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Cullompton property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Cullompton Home Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) home in Cullompton.

Stucco is in fact just a kind of smooth render. Typically stucco is layered over underlying brick hardens to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco render is very beautiful and is found on Victorian properties. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water. it can be problematic and Cullompton surveyors sometimes detail any number of problems such as trapped moisture resulting in the render failing needing repair.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could include attack from salts derived from wet bricks. Re-applying problems can be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a house and the estate agent has told us that it has been built with Cotswold stone. Are there any problems that need to be investigated?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Hard Blue Limestone to Farmington Stone. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. If you are planning to renovate, consider that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Houndaller Quarry, Houndaller Farm, Uffculme, Cullompton, Devon, EX15 3EP for details. Call 01884 840463 for more information.

Gas flame

Does a surveyor go into detail on the state of the gas heaters?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the mains gas installation at the home, as well as gas affiliated fittings such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). External fittings or covers however, won't be removed. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
