HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kingsthorpe and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kingsthorpe property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Kingsthorpe property's condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get London brick upkeep guidance for the Kingsthorpe residence we're purchasing? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-built apartments feature several advantages, but they will also experience considerable issues, such as lack of a damp proof course. One serious matter is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Teclo Brickwork should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 14 Charlotte Rd, Wallasey, CH44 0DW or 0151-345 5108.

For example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Kingsthorpe. What will we need to look out for when buying older property? What effect will the wooden structure have on maintenance?

The age of a structure can create difficulties for an owner. Buildings constructed with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property.

Damaged Render

What problems will a Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco Victorian house in Kingsthorpe that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just dense solid render. Commonly it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a very smooth surface. The effect is highly attractive and is often found on Victorian and Regency properties. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very like plaster. It may contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Kingsthorpe Building Surveys can discover defects such as trapped water culminating in problems with damp. Other issues could be when the application is taken down to ground level and bypasses the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Resolving Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as renderers are getting more difficult to find.
