HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Tibshelf and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Tibshelf property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Tibshelf property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Tibshelf. What warnings would you give? Does brick decay faster in Tibshelf weather?

Brick-walled Tibshelf converted property can experience numerous defects, including weathering and badly applied render. A problem regularly identified is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. For more information, contact a local builder, Button & Ball Building Contractors Ltd of 4 Glebe View, Coalville, LE67 3NJ on 01530 814004.

One example is English bond or sailor bond are both used in Tibshelf converted property. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our house surveyor inquire into flood damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can all result in extensive water damage caused by flooding, and purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor consider on a stucco regency house in Tibshelf.

Stucco is just a smooth and flat render. Commonly it is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to a very smooth surface. The finish is very grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings. It is very similar to plaster or mortar to apply. Stucco is often problematic and Tibshelf Building Surveys frequently focus on defects such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated and thus prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Resolving problems with stucco may be expensive as renderers are becoming more difficult to find.
