HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Newton Ferrers and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Newton Ferrers property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Newton Ferrers property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency house in Newton Ferrers which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact dense render. Usually stucco is layered over brick that sets to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. It is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian buildings. It is almost exactly the same as plaster to apply. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Newton Ferrers sometimes detail defects such as when it is faced with constant driving rain which becomes saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Resolving problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Newton Ferrers - What should we investigate during the survey?

Houses in Newton Ferrers in good condition may be exposed to damage to the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the gables to the valley gutters. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Newton Ferrers, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Newton Ferrers will look for a range of signs, including a poor asphalt covering.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Newton Ferrers roofing contractor for the job itself. Contact Watson K of 104 Lalebrick Rd, Plymouth, PL9 9RP on 01752 492502 for a quote.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a house in the region a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. hazardous waste material. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Newton Ferrers surveyors will consider structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to South Hams Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
