HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Fishponds and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Fishponds property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Fishponds property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will your RICS Surveyor examine on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Fishponds that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a form of render. Typically stucco render is layered over red brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian houses. Stucco is often problematic and Fishponds Building Surveys commonly detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, horizontal pattern like cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems can possibly result be when dampness

below windows that causes the render detaching. Re-covering problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The English bond walls on this Edwardian property needs work. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed residential property in Fishponds do benefit from many advantages over buildings using regular cut stone, but they can also indicate a number of issues, such as moisture damage. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. For more information, contact a local builder, Nash bricklayers of 3 Charminster Av, Birmingham, B25 8RH on 07806 556101.

For example, stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Should we opt for the full structural survey if purchasing a neglected forties home in Fishponds rather than a HomeBuyer Report?
