HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cromer and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Cromer property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Cromer property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Diagonal bond walls on this Victorian property appears to have several cracks. What are the possible consequences? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed buildings in Cromer do benefit from many advantages over structures built with irregular stone, but they can also be subject to numerous defects. Any such issues ought to be reported on, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. A serious concern is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. A S P Building at 6 Old Ford Av, Southam, CV47 0LH on 07810 698435.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about vermin. What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. An affected house may not always be easy to identify.

For example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to an infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.
