HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Matlock and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Matlock property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Matlock property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will a Chartered Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian detached house in Matlock which we wish to buy.

Stucco is dense render. Commonly it is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. The finish is very aesthetic and is found on Regency properties. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water. it can be problematic and Matlock Homebuyer Reports sometimes focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems such as trapped moisture resulting in the render failing requiring costly repairs.

Another example of problems might include attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Remedying Stucco problems may be difficult as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Matlock. What recommendations will the surveyor make? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built Matlock structures demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also suffer from various issues and defects, from moisture damage to defective mortar. These issues will be mentioned in the report along with recommendations. A problem regularly identified is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Contact Button & Ball Building Contractors Ltd for a repairs estimate at 01530 814004 or 4 Glebe View, Coalville, LE67 3NJ.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint.

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

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor examine the state of repair of the gas supply?

A RICS surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route where relevant, in addition to gas related appliances such as chimney linings. Any fittings however, won't be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas can be dangerous, should you have any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations require that all landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .
