Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Borrowash that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really a specific type of render. Usually stucco render is applied to underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly appealing and is/was often found on Victorian and Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors sometimes report any number of problems such as when movement of the wall results in cracks.

Another example of problems may result from the heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-coating Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Stone block wall damage

Can property partially constructed with stone create issues for residents? What should we look in to?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Problems which impact stone-built properties in Borrowash can vary greatly, with issues like delamination being quote common. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.

House Prices

There is a potentially interesting investment property located in Borrowash. What things does a qualified RICS surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Borrowash ?

A myriad of factors exist that can add to or subtract from the price of property like the quality of nearby schools or the quality of the bathroom and fittings. .

An impartial way to get an accurate and professional house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. A surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).
