HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Kenley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kenley property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Kenley property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details get a Kenley Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick walls on this Kenley house is in poor condition - what should we do? Is age a factor?

Kenley brick-walled buildings can show signs of various issues and defects, from frost damage to sulphate expansion. For example, sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall and may require immediate attention. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Monks Brick Work of 2 Shelton Av, Sale, M33 5DZ on 07896 184656.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond, to the rare, such herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern.

If the Kenley surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Gas flame

Will the Kenley surveyor examine the serviceability of the gas mains supply?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the location of the meter as part of the Kenley survey, as well as gas connected fixtures such as chimney breasts or flues. Any external fittings however, won't be removed. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
