HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Uppingham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Uppingham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works on the Uppingham property, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Uppingham property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Surveyor consider on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Uppingham.

Stucco is actually a kind of smooth solid render. Typically it is applied to brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly beautiful and is found on Regency buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Uppingham Homebuyer Reports sometimes show any number of problems such as horizontal pattern like cracking that describes the mortar joints underneath

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when dampness gets in under flashings which causes detachment. Re-applying problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

Can structures constructed with stone cause problems for buyers? Which related issues should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Problems which impact stone-built homes in Uppingham can vary greatly, with issues like penetrating damp being quote common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Uppingham are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Repair advice often includes using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a converted stable. Will upkeep costs be higher?

Many purchasers would like to own a home with character. A building's age, however, can concern buyers. Property employing traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. Contact your surveyor for further advice.
