HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Dereham and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Dereham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Dereham property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor advise on the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your chartered surveyor will visually examine any accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters where relevant, as well as gas affiliated fixtures, for instance associated asbestos. Any external fittings will not be undone. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old farmhouse. Will upkeep costs be higher?

Many buyers have looked at purchasing a old, characterful home one day. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can worry purchasers. Homes featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. Mention this to your surveyor for more information.

Damaged Render

What will my Dereham Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco coated Victorian home in Dereham.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is very aesthetic and is/was often found on Victorian and Regency homes. it can be problematic and Surveyors can show any number of problems like trapped moisture culminating in the surface breaking

Another example of problems associated with stucco might include attack from salts absorbed from underlying brickwork. Re-coating problems with stucco can be dear as the skills are getting harder to find.
