HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Heath Hayes and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Heath Hayes property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the Heath Hayes property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Heath Hayes property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Monk bond upkeep suggestions for the house in Heath Hayes we're going to buy? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-walled property in Heath Hayes can indicate a number of issues. The Heath Hayes surveyor should report on these, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. A defect requiring immediate attention is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Williams Mark Building Contractor of 13 Ashville Ave, Scarborough, YO12 7NF on 01723 360984.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I would be advised to check on when purchasing a home in Heath Hayes in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local council. Heath Hayes surveyors must have knowledge of local issues and the effect they have on the building and its value. Prices is typically higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them being in good order. However many areas are falling into poor condition for example - the removal front garden walls

Surveyors can be expected to note if the home is/might be within a conservation area and Section I of a Heath Hayes Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are carried out during the legal process. Unconsented adjustments to the property will also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled house. What potential issues must we watch out for? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, get in touch with a local firm. For example, Fireside Factory, Unit 6 7, Norton Canes Business Park, Norton Green La, Norton Canes, Cannock, WS11 9SS may be able to assist.
