HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Browns Green and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Browns Green property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Browns Green property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a Browns Green surveyor report on the safety of the gas appliances?

Your surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the system. This means things like the routing of any gas pipes at the building, as well as gas associated appliances such as fixed external ventilation hearths. A Browns Green chartered surveyor won't actually remove any external fittings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests whatsoever on the system. Needless to say, gas can be dangerous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings at all, , call a gas safe engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Flemish Stretcher bond maintenance tips for the Tudor house we are buying? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-walled Browns Green homes can be subject to a range of defects. One particularly serious issue is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Williams Derek of Poolside Cottage/Judgefield La, Brown Edge, Stoke-On-Trent, ST6 8UG on 01782 510490.

For home purchasers in Browns Green seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old dovecot. Will the age of the structure be a problem?

Some buyers plan to buy a home with character. For traditionally-built Browns Green property, age, however, can be problematic. Structures employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may result in higher ongoing expenses. Discuss this with the Browns Green surveyor for more detail.
