HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Woolwich and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Woolwich property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Woolwich property's state of repair along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Kentish Rag stone-built property be difficult to repair. What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone to Rockingstone Sandstone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like deteriorating mortar 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. 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. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance,

such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. Purchasers renovating Woolwich buildings should be aware that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. To source stone quarried in Woolwich, you can contact local suppliers.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Woolwich property, can you give some examples of an amber light rating defects impacting roof coverings?

Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. Flat and sloping roofs are checked, provided that access is possible. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report. Loose or corroded roof fasteners or screws is an example of a Section E defect.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Woolwich. What warnings would a property surveyor in Woolwich give?

Woolwich property with brick walls can be affected by distinct issues. These can include erosion or spalling. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey. An especially severe issue is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. DM Brickwork & Landscaping at 186 Dickson Dr, Irvine, KA12 9HB on 01294 278965.

A range of techniques of brick building can be found across Woolwich. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
