HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Halkyn and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Halkyn property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Halkyn property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick wall guidelines for upkeep, can a surveyor in Halkyn help? Does brick decay faster in Halkyn weather?

Brick-built Halkyn apartments do benefit from many advantages over timber-built homes. Unfortunately, they also be subject to distinct issues, from frost damage to horizontal cracking. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Norris L J may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 020 8878 0649 or 21 Devon Av, Twickenham, TW2 6PN.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced

bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows, to the rare, such English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will heavy rainfall have on a building? Where there is damage, what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact wet conditions can have on buildings is usually overlooked by house purchasers. If you have investigated the residence in the Summer, problems are unlikely to be visible.

Whether buying in Halkyn or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy. Where this is untreated or poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1850s cottage with stone walls. What should we be particularly aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including erosion. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like erosion will vary with the particular type of stone. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
