HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Keyworth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Keyworth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Keyworth property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Keyworth, and does our RICS surveyor mention it?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which damp weather has on Keyworth buildings is not considered. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include mildew in the attic. This can lead to rotten roof timbers.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair fairly cheaply. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian home in Keyworth that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact just a form of render. Normally it is layered over brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is very aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when it is faced with constant driving rain which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems could result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Resolving Stucco problems can be dear as renderers are getting more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a conversion and the vendor has told us that it has been partially constructed with Bath stone. What matters must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of property in Keyworth, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
