HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Great Stanmore and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Great Stanmore property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Great Stanmore property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered regency house in Great Stanmore.

Stucco is really just smooth type of render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco render is very beautiful and is often found on Victorian and Georgian houses. it can be problematic and Great Stanmore Homebuyer Reports sometimes show issues such as moisture trapped behind paint coatings which cannot escape leading to worsening damp issues.

Another example of problems may be when moisture under flashings which results in the render detaching. Re-applying Stucco problems can be expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.

Stone block wall damage

Can York stone-built houses be difficult to repair. Are there any factors that need to be investigated?

From Stanton Moor Sandstone to Orton Scar Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Great Stanmore are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to upgrade to a full structural survey if purchasing a un-loved period townhouse in Great Stanmore instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally referred to as a Full Structural Survey by some, this survey is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been given a new moniker by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is now the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a 60 year old or less unmodified house built out of conventional building materials i.e. brick and tile. A Building Survey is definitely the most relevant survey to choose in relation to the property described. Following a thorough site survey of the accessible parts, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is dispatched to the client summarising any crucial details about the state of repair of the house. There will be several limitations with a property survey to be aware of as a chartered surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Great Stanmore house - such as moving heavy furniture. See the survey differences article for more detail on survey specifics.
