HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Eaton Bray property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the Eaton Bray property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Eaton Bray property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Eaton Bray which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually dense render. Usually stucco is applied to underlying brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is very aesthetic and is found on Victorian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Eaton Bray Home Buyers Suveys can reveal defects for instance when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the heavy loads above such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Fixing Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Eaton Bray, what directions can a Eaton Bray property surveyor offer for property with brick?

Brick-built Eaton Bray residences feature several advantages compared to other types of construction. Unfortunately, they also be affected by a range of defects, ranging from defective mortar to erosion. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address 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. Contact MLH Building Services for a repairs estimate at 0161-445 5523 or 17 Mellington Av, Manchester, M20 5WE.

For home purchasers in Eaton Bray seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a property - Is a Property Survey advisable?

Houses are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, for example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to a serious infestation can include insecticides.
