HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Griffithstown and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Griffithstown property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Griffithstown property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems we should verify if planning to buy a period property in Griffithstown inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any relation they have with the building. The price of property will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents because of conservation areas being in good order.

Surveyors can be expected to report whether the location looks like it may be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Griffithstown Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted by your legal adviser. Unauthorised adjustments to the property may also be reported but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a property surveyor in Griffithstown give for a house constructed with stretcher bond walls?

Brick-built Griffithstown apartments feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also experience diverse problems. For instance, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Woolley Lee, 44 Keswick Rd, Solihull, B92 7PH on 0121-242 6159 for a quote for repair work.

For home purchasers in Griffithstown seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Griffithstown Surveyor look for on a stucco regency house in Griffithstown.

Stucco is actually just a form of render. Typically stucco is layered over underlying red brick hardens to a smooth stone like appearance. The coating is highly beautiful and is found on Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Griffithstown Homebuyer Reports frequently discover issues for instance horizontal cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork

Another example of problems might be when water enters below flashings which causes the render detaching. Remedying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
