HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Upminster Bridge and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Upminster Bridge property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Upminster Bridge property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas supply?

Your will visually look at the accessible parts of the system. This means things like the gas pipe route at the home, as well as gas connected gas installations in the house such as associated asbestos. However, the Upminster Bridge qualified RICS surveyor won't actually remove fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any concerns about gas or if you suspect a gas issue, contact a gas safe engineer.

Regulations require that all landlords are obligated to complete appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are severe .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a cottage built Beer stone. What should we look in to?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Damaged Render

What will the Upminster Bridge Surveyor consider on a stucco regency home in Upminster Bridge that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a form of solid render. Typically stucco is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. It is very grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Upminster Bridge Homebuyer Reports frequently reveal any number of problems e.g. dampness trapped behind paint (assuming painted) which cannot escape leading to worsening damp issues. Other issues can possibly result be when water beneath flashings that causes detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
