HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Waterloo property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension on the Waterloo property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Waterloo property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian house in Waterloo.

Stucco is just a kind of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly appealing and is often found on Georgian houses. The composition is similar to mortar (sand and cement). it can be problematic and Waterloo Home Buyers Suveys can detail any number of problems such as when it is faced with constant driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles

that have absorbed water. Re-applying Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a home close to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including inert waste disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include complex organic chemicals .

Building Surveys and valuations in Waterloo will consider structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the Landmark database as well as Southwark Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Waterloo and are looking for buildings built with Flemish bond walls. What recommendations will a Waterloo surveyor make?

Brick-constructed apartments do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also indicate several common problems, ranging from sulphate attack to moisture damage. For instance, damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including A & S Bricklaying Contractors Ltd of Unit 9 Llys Caer Felin/Felinfach, Fforestfach, Swansea, SA5 4HH on 01792 584279.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. If the 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.
