HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Newton Heath and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Newton Heath property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Newton Heath property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will a Chartered Surveyor consider on a spar dash rendered (stucco) house in Newton Heath that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is a sort of flat finish render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Regency buildings. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very similar to plaster. Stucco is often prone to defect and Newton Heath Home Buyers Suveys commonly report any number of problems such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the eaves. Fixing problems with stucco may be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming rarer.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1850s Newton Heath house with stone walls. What related issues should we be aware of?

From Portland Fancy Beach Limestone to Beer Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Problems which impact stone-built Newton Heath houses can vary greatly, with issues like salt contamination of being quote common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Newton Heath houses, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about pests affecting properties nearby - Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Any questions about pests affecting a Newton Heath home may not be asked by the lawyer. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to pest problems can include traps and removal or excision of affected timber.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor. Contact a specialist, e.g. Pestproof Ltd, Mitre Street, Failsworth, Manchester, M35 9BY, or call 0161 684 9451, to discuss remedial options.
