HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Leek and which would be the cheapest?

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

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

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Leek property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the RICS Surveyor consider on a stucco coated Victorian home in Leek.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth flat finish. The finish is very appealing and was often applied to Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can detail issues for example, when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Resolving problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous substance formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials such as central heating flues.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in garage roofs.
