HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ely and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Ely property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Ely property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Ely. What advice would the Ely house surveyor give in their report?

Property in Ely in otherwise fine condition may be exposed to roofing woes. From fascias to ceiling joists, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. The surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Ely, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder in Ely for the job itself. Speak to Albion Roofing Services Ltd of 12 Laurel Cl, Mepal, Ely, CB6 2BN on 01353 777066 for more information.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. Are there specific factors to bear in mind, and what will the survey reveal?

Buyers of a Grade I listed building should consider that they may need to ensure any future repairs are 'sympathetic'. This is monitored by the local council. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. Deterioration of lime mortar can often be the cause of a wall's failure and collapse. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Allen Newport Ltd, Walton House, Fordham, Ely, Cambridgeshire, CB7 5JZ, quarrying Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01638 720228 for more information.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will my Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency detached house in Ely.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really just smooth type of render. Typically stucco is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a very smooth surface. The effect is highly attractive and is found on Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Ely surveyors sometimes highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for example trapped water culminating in internal damp problems

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