Which property survey is the best choice for my planned home purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if purchasing a home constructed from conventional materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable order and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Raunds) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this for non standard , for example granite wall or older houses.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Raunds and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Raunds property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Raunds property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a home and the seller has suggested that it has been built with Doulting stone. Which related issues should we consider?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including erosion of pointing joints. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like erosion of pointing joints will vary with the particular type of stone.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Damaged Render

What will a Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Raunds which we wish to buy.

Stucco is smooth type of render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. Stucco is very aesthetic and was found on Victorian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Raunds commonly discover issues such as horizontal pattern like cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other issues can possibly result be when water enters under flashings which causes large areas of detachment. Remedying Stucco problems can be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish Stretcher bond upkeep guidance, can the surveyor help?

Brick-constructed property in Raunds feature several advantages, but they can also indicate numerous defects. This could be anything from spalling to moisture damage. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. For more information, contact a local builder, Talty M F of 62 Holmoaks, Rainham, Gillingham, ME8 7DN on 01634 364750.

For example, running, or stretcher, bond.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
