HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Mobberley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Mobberley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Mobberley property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor report on the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

The surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like the location of the meter as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances or installations like flue/chimney maintenance. Your Mobberley surveyor won't actually remove any external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to run any tests on the system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it can be dangerous, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Mobberley. Is there any brick repair advice we should be aware of??

Brick structures in Mobberley will be affected by diverse problems, such as signs of movement. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey, with feedback. A serious concern is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Bricklaying.Co, 39 Bursill Cr, Ramsgate, CT12 6HA on 07772 886945 for a quote for repair work.

For instance, English bond or basket weave bonds are both used in Mobberley structures. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1870s home in Mobberley with stone walls. Are there any issues that need to be investigated?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Grey Catcastle Sandstone to Peakmoor Sandstone, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes use of traditional methods to maintain older walls. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
