HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Connahs Quay and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Connahs Quay property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Connahs Quay property's condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Connahs Quay Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The handmade bricks on this Victorian property is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences? Does brick decay faster in Connahs Quay weather?

Brick-built property do benefit from many advantages, but they will also be affected by diverse problems. These can include frost damaged pointing or signs of movement. For instance, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and should be taken very seriously. Payne & Lyttle Construction should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 112 Rushgrove Av, London, NW9 6RD or 07955 626222.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses in Connahs Quay cause issues for the owner? Are there specific problems to consider?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including algae. Defects affecting stone-built property in Connahs Quay can vary, algae being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Damaged Render

What will the Connahs Quay Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered home in Connahs Quay that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact a specific type of render. Usually it is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to an even finish. Stucco render is very grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors can reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. lateral hairline cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems could result from the heavy loads above such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems may be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.
