HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Culcheth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Culcheth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the Culcheth property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Culcheth property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the surveyor check out the condition of the gas appliances?

The qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include the gas pipe route as part of the survey, as well as gas connected appliances/installations for example - chimney linings. Fittings won't actually be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas can be hazardous, if you have any concerns, call a gas engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Culcheth. What directions can a Culcheth property surveyor offer? Does the age of the property matter?

Culcheth brick-walled residences can experience various issues and defects, from frost damage to horizontal cracking. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is 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. For more information, contact a local builder, Bricklaying.Co of 39 Bursill Cr, Ramsgate, CT12 6HA on 07772 886945.

For instance, header bond or English garden wall bond are both used in Culcheth residences. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Property Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Culcheth that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact just a kind of render. Commonly it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to an even finish. It is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Culcheth Building Surveys sometimes reveal issues such as when movement of the wall can lead to cracks. Other potential problems could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving Stucco problems can be costly as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.
