HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Coniston and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Coniston property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Coniston property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Coniston, what input does a property surveyor in Coniston give for buildings with Sussex bond brick?

Brick-walled Coniston structures can be affected by several common problems, ranging from thermal movement to DPC failure. For example, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and may require immediate attention. Birch Paul Contract Brickwork Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 15 Defford Avenue, Walsall, WS4 1AQ or 07774 715089.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork.
