HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Gosforth and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Gosforth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Gosforth property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Monk bond repair tips - can the surveyor assist?

Brick-built conversions do benefit from many advantages, but they will also be affected by distinct issues, including DPC failure and sulphate expansion. Your chartered surveyor should report on these, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. A defect requiring immediate attention is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Hester R B may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Lands End/Landsend La, Twyford, Reading, RG10 0UE or 0118-934 5200.

Brick-build property have been used for centuries, leading to a good selection of methods and styles. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Surveyor be looking for on a smooth stucco regency home in Gosforth.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really dense render. Typically it is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. It is highly grand in appearance and is/was was often applied to Victorian and Regency buildings. It is similar to plaster or mortar. It may contain lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Gosforth Building Surveys commonly show any number of problems like trapped water culminating in damp problems requiring costly repairs. Other issues might include when the render has been taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course. Resolving problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
