HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Nettleham and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Nettleham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Nettleham property's general condition as well as information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the house in Nettleham we plan to buy - How do we investigate further?

Buyers in Nettleham should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. Your

surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Nettleham property with a loft conversion. What does the surveyor look into during the survey?

Property in and around Nettleham with no other major issues can be blighted by roof maintenance problems, such as wet rot. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormer windows. The surveyors in Nettleham could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing contractor in Nettleham can provide an estimate.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency home in Nettleham.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really a kind of smooth render. Commonly stucco is layered over underlying red brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. It is very beautiful and is was often applied to Georgian houses for example. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors sometimes highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems such as horizontal cracking that describes the mortar lines between the brick. Other issues may be when water under sills which results in the render detaching. Remedying problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.
