HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Stockport property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works on the property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Stockport property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the surveyor advise on the serviceability of the gas installations?

Your qualified surveyor will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) at the home, in addition to gas related fixtures like chimney linings. Any external fittings will not be removed. Gas can be fatal, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Stockport based gas engineers include Pooler Limited of 92, Chevington Drive, Stockport, Cheshire Tel. 07912103125 and MCR Gas of 11, Rosedale Road, Stockport, Cheshire Tel. 07795 606390.

The regulations stipulate that all landlords are legally required to complete appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are harsh .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would you give for properties constructed with Diagonal bond walls?

Brick residences in Stockport will be affected by various issues and defects. An especially severe issue is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Richardson M P Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at Elm Cottage/Maldon Rd, Witham, CM8 1HN or 01376 503045.

A range of courses arrangements and colours of brick building have been used across the country for centuries. One example is Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Damaged Render

What will a RICS Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated home in Stockport.

Stucco is in fact a form of render. Typically stucco is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. It is very attractive and is found on Victorian houses. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Stockport frequently highlight issues for example trapped moisture leading to the surface falling away needing repair. Other potential problems could involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet bricks. Remedying problems can be expensive as renderers are getting more difficult to find.
