Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Liverpool) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional , for example timber frame properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Liverpool

    This is an independent valuation . It is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Liverpool and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Liverpool property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Liverpool property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor examine on a smooth stucco semi detached home in Liverpool which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact a smooth and flat render. Usually stucco is layered over brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. It is very beautiful and was often applied to Regency houses. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Liverpool can detail any number of problems e.g. trapped moisture culminating in problems with damp needing repair.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may involve attack from salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Remedying problems can be dear as renderers are getting more difficult to find.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it necessary to go for a full structural survey before investing in a defective thirties home in Liverpool?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a non period unmodified Liverpool house assembled from standard construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is certainly the right one to go for in relation to the house described. Following an exhaustive survey of the accessible areas of the house a written report (digital and written copy) will be sent to the purchaser providing in depth and salient information concerning the construction of the house.

There will be a few restrictions with a Building Survey because your surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Liverpool house, an example being the removing secured panels.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this Edwardian terrace might need repairs - what should we do?

Brick-walled Liverpool houses can experience numerous defects, such as badly applied render. An especially severe issue is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Ingleby Brickwork, 4 Wharton Rd, Stamford Bridge, York, YO41 1PN on 01759 377556 for a quote for repair work.

Brick-build property are found in many homes built in this country, leading to a number of popular courses and methods.

  • Sash window frame with wet rot

    By Stewart Heasman September 29th, 2012

    Wet rot is usually associated with neglect or poor detailing in buildings, occurring in timbers which are continually wet, or having persistent moisture content in excess of around 20%. This can be caused by leaking roofs, joinery exposed to the elements (as was the case in this property) or...
