HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Ketton and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Ketton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the Ketton property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Ketton property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor check out the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your qualified surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the mains is connected for example, as well as gas connected gas installations in the house, for instance balanced flues. A Ketton local surveyor won't remove the gas fittings and will not run any tests on the appliances or system. Gas can be deadly, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Ketton, what warnings would the surveyor give for houses built from Sussex bond brick?

Ketton converted property with brick walls can experience considerable issues. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with repair advice also supplied. A problem regularly identified is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Godden J V of 13 Youngs Rd, Ilford, IG2 7LF on 020 8554 0417.

A range of styles and techniques of brick building have been used for centuries. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. Consider renegotiating the price of the Ketton property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Ketton that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a type of render. Normally it is layered over brick that dries to an even finish. The effect is highly aesthetic and was common on some Victorian buildings. it can be problematic and Ketton surveyors commonly show defects such as horizontal pattern like cracking revealing the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other potential problems might be when dampness gets in beneath sills that causes detachment. Re-covering Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming more difficult to find.
