HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Louth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Louth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Louth property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a gatehouse in Louth. Will the residence's age be a concern?

Many buyers in Louth have looked at purchasing a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. Older construction methods and materials, however, can worry purchasers, and Houses built with traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could mean expensive ongoing repairs.If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with your surveyor for more information. Erected between 1661 and 1353, The Mall in Drogheda is a traditional property of the time.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a home and the agent has informed us that it has been constructed with Portland stone. What should we be particularly aware of?

From Hopton Wood Limestone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like delamination will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage. 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.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Saltfleetby B Gaswell, Saddleback Road, Howdales, South Cockerington, Louth, Lincolnshire, LN11 7DJ for details. Call 01507 338052 for more information.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Louth.

Stucco is really a form of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly aesthetic and is found on Regency buildings. It may contain lime in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Louth can reveal defects for instance trapped water culminating in the render failing requiring costly repairs.

Another example of problems may include when the stucco is taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Fixing problems with stucco may be expensive as renderers are getting rarer.
