HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Bromyard and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Bromyard property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Bromyard property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my RICS Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered home in Bromyard that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a smooth and flat solid render. Commonly stucco is layered over red brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is very beautiful and is often found on Victorian buildings. It is almost exactly the same as plaster. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Bromyard sometimes detail any number of problems such as when it is exposed to driving rain which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues might result from the supporting heavy loads above such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Fixing problems with stucco may be surprisingly expensive as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Bromyard. Is there any London brick guidelines for upkeep we should be aware of??

Brick-built Bromyard structures do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also indicate distinct issues. These can include weathering or spalling. One particularly serious issue is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. A C Brickwork & Builders should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01689 619081 or 22 Gladwell Rd, Bromley, BR1 4DA.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern. Consider renegotiating the price of the Bromyard property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the building we are planning to lease it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Homebuyer Report in Bromyard write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

When preparing a Homebuyer Report in Bromyard the RICS surveyor will typically comment on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous state. This should include an overview inspection of any uncovered sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as other things, for example verifying the type of electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician should usually be part of the survey in Bromyard.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommend that a Periodic Inspection be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting).
