HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in High Wycombe and which is the cheapest?

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

If the High Wycombe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the High Wycombe property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the High Wycombe property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will your Property Surveyor consider on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in High Wycombe.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco is layered over brick that sets to an even finish. Stucco render is highly aesthetic and was common on some Victorian and Regency properties. Specialists say that it is very like mortar (sand and cement). Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and High Wycombe Homebuyer Reports commonly reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems such as trapped water leading to internal damp problems. Other issues might include when the application has been taken down

to ground level and short circuits the DPC. Fixing problems can be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this converted apartment is badly worn. What are the possible consequences? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-walled residential property in High Wycombe can be affected by considerable issues. This could be anything from horizontal cracking to lack of a damp proof course. For example, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and may require immediate attention. Kingswood Construction Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0117-960 4261 or Rear Of 20 Gilbert Rd, Kingswood, Bristol, BS15 1RE.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornate Della Robbia bond paving. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a maisonette near to a rubbish dump

Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns such as spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .
