HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Audlem and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Audlem property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Audlem property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Audlem, what warnings would a Audlem property surveyor give for homes with brick? Does render make a difference?

Brick-walled flats in Audlem can show signs of numerous defects, including frost damage and signs of movement. For example, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and may require immediate attention. Stewart And Sons Builders may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01283 310141 or 49 Blackfordby La, Moira, Swadlincote, DE12 6EX.
