HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Laindon and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Laindon property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Laindon property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I want to acquire a property in Laindon (SS15) for around £254, 119. What will the Laindon qualified surveyor take into account in the process of a professional valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect property values ranging from whether it is freehold, leasehold or share of freehold to the over all desirability of the street. It is useful to look at values achieved in Laindon at the same time for similar houses.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £233, 919, which is £20, 200 less than the price being asked. The house/flat average was £213, 932. Cranleigh, Dunton Road, Basildon, Basildon, Essex, SS15 4BX a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £350, 000 .

In order for you to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Laindon which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service.

Stone block wall damage

Can Slate-built homes be hard to upkeep. What should we be particularly aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Issues including delamination affect many stone-walled houses in Laindon. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Laindon are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Laindon Surveyor take into account on a stucco period home in Laindon that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a kind of render. Usually it is applied to underlying red brick to form an even finish. The effect is very grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian and Regency homes. Stucco is similar to plaster and mortar. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Laindon surveyors frequently show issues for instance trapped moisture resulting in problems with damp

Another example of problems associated with stucco may include when the application has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course. Re-coating problems with stucco can be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.
