HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kingsbridge and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Kingsbridge property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Kingsbridge property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this converted property is badly worn. What are the possible consequences? What impact do Kingsbridge environmental conditions have?

Brick-built conversions demonstrate several benefits, but they will also be subject to diverse problems. This could be anything from sulphate attack to frost damaged pointing. The RICS surveyor will mention these along with recommendations. One problem often found is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. F & R Brickwork at 16 Prince Of Wales Rd, Sutton, SM1 3PA should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 020 8641 1921.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Damaged Render

What will a Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) detached house in Kingsbridge that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact just a specific type of render. Commonly stucco is applied to underlying brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco render is highly attractive and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian buildings. Sometimes it can contain lime in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can reveal any number of problems like trapped water resulting in damp problems. Other potential problems could involve sulphate attack from sulphates sucked out of brickwork. Re-coating problems may be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of insects in the kitchen. How do we investigate further?

Pests like moths may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Kingsbridge. Regrettably, infestations can impact a home's worth and affect the health of residents. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies to insect infestation can include removal of infected furniture.
