HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Aspley Guise and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Aspley Guise property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Aspley Guise property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Aspley Guise Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a property near to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous waste. No one really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks include methane gas generation .

Surveyors in Aspley Guise will consider structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Milton Keynes Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Scottish bond maintenance tips - can a property surveyor in Aspley Guise assist?

Aspley Guise flats with brick walls can experience several common problems, from frost damage to badly applied render. Any such issues ought to be reported on, with directions for remedy. One serious matter is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Samphurst Brickwork of 58 Leighlands Rd, South Woodham Ferrers, Chelmsford, CM3 5XS on 01245 329724.

Brick-build property can be found across the UK, leading to a range of techniques. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor take into account on a stucco Victorian home in Aspley Guise that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a kind of smooth render. Usually it is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a smooth and even finish. The effect is highly appealing and is/was was often applied to Regency buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Aspley Guise surveyors frequently focus on any number of problems such as when movement of the wall can lead to cracks.

Another example of problems might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-coating problems with stucco may be costly as renderers are getting more difficult to find.
