HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Syston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Syston property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Syston property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we want to purchase, it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, will a Syston Homebuyer Report give details on on the electrical system?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Syston the surveyor should make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. A Home surveyor is expected to focus on issues like checking that the supplementary bonding is in the correct place. Verifying the location of the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey in Syston.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey in Syston .

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection Report is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property in Syston with Portland stone walls. Which major issues should we consider?

Ranging from Brown Woodkirk Sandstone to Farmington Stone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

If, in the course of carrying out maintenance, you need further advice, speak to a Syston specialist, including Evans Fireplace Centre, 1159 Melton Rd, Syston, Leicester, LE7 2JS (Tel: 0116-260 0772).

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Syston Surveyor be looking for on a stucco house in Syston that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a kind of smooth render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like surface. The coating is very appealing and is often found on Victorian houses. It is very similar to plaster and mortar. Stucco is often prone to defect and Syston Building Surveys commonly highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when it is faced with on-going weathering which becomes saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the supporting heavy loads above such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Fixing Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are getting harder to find.
