HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Stratford and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Stratford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Stratford property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will you make for a 90s property built with brick? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built properties feature several advantages, but they will also experience distinct issues. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. Contact Levene Brickwork Ltd for a repairs estimate at 07919 567082 or 59 Peartree Rd, Luton, LU2 8AZ.

As an example, Monk bond or shiner bond are both used in Stratford properties. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Other external areas of the property

For the Stratford HomeBuyer Report what are the usual Condition Rating 1 defects affecting 'E9 - Other' ?

For a Stratford home, one example could be cantilevered joist problems. This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Green (condition rating 1) is the best possible assessment, and confirms that this part of the house is in a good state, but regular upkeep may still be required. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular Stratford residence, omitting sections as necessary.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor examine on a stucco regency house in Stratford.

Stucco is smooth type of render. Normally it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth stone like surface. The coating is very beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian houses. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Stratford frequently focus on any number of problems such as lateral pattern like cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems could be when water gets in below sills which causes the render detaching requiring raking back and reapplying. Re-covering problems with stucco can be costly as craftsmen are becoming harder to find.
