HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Drybrook and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Drybrook property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you comprehensive details of the Drybrook property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick chimney on this converted apartment has deteriorated. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed houses feature several advantages. However, they can also show signs of several common problems, such as frost damage. For example, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and may require immediate attention. Baines Warren may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 29 Sulby Dr, Ribbleton, Preston, PR2 6RR or 07803 165653.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall, to the rare, such herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact could rain have on a property? Can damaged rainwater goods decrease our property's value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact high levels of rainfall can have on buildings in Drybrook is not given enough thought. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase in on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious, and may lead to water damage. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will my Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian home in Drybrook that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really dense render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The finish is highly beautiful and is often found on Regency buildings. it can be prone to defect and Drybrook Home Buyers Suveys frequently show issues for instance horizontal cracking revealing the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other issues may result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-covering problems can be difficult as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.
