Do you need a Property Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice if you are purchasing a home constructed from conventional materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Canonbury and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Canonbury property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give comprehensive details of the Canonbury property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will your Surveyor take into account on a stucco house in Canonbury which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco is applied to brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian buildings. it can be problematic and Canonbury Homebuyer Reports commonly detail issues e.g. water trapped behind paint (assuming painted)

Another example of problems could be when dampness under sills that causes large areas of detachment. Re-coating Stucco problems may be expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a Canonbury surveyor give for a home with Diagonal bond walls? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick Canonbury homes will be subject to diverse problems, ranging from sulphate attack to inadequate damp-proofing. Such defects will be discussed in the report. One serious matter is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Traditional Repointing Contractors should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at A/158 Downhall Rd, Rayleigh, SS6 9LP or 01702 527378.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic caused problems in the old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This often causes anxiety for house purchasers. A large number of properties can be blighted by difficulties with the roof. From collar beams to rafters, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing specialist can provide one.
