HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Monmouth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Monmouth property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Monmouth property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Monmouth, what suggestions can a Monmouth surveyor make for a 30s house built from English bond walls? What impact do Monmouth environmental conditions have?

Brick-constructed residential property in Monmouth feature several advantages over buildings using regular cut stone, but they can also experience both minor and serious issues, such as erosion. For example, damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork and may require immediate attention. A local builder should be able to assist. Call S B M Building & Property Maintenance, 45 St. Marys Road, Swanley, BR8 7BA on 01322 406351 for a quote for repair work.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco house in Monmouth that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just a kind of smooth render. Typically it is applied to red brick that dries to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Regency homes. Stucco is often problematic and Monmouth Home Buyers Suveys frequently report potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. horizontal visible cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other issues might be when water under flashings that results in large areas of detachment. Re-covering problems may be expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a renovated farmhouse. What consequences will the box frame structure have on maintenance?

Some purchasers would like to own a old, characterful home one day. A property's age, however, can often be problematic. Monmouth property built using traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the chartered surveyor for more detail.
