HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Welling and which is cheaper?

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

If the Welling property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a thorough analysis of the Welling property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Monk bond maintenance advice for the Tudor property we're buying?

Brick-constructed flats do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also indicate diverse problems, from moisture damage to badly applied render.

A defect often found is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Contact Preston Precision Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 07547 534446 or 9 Woodfield, Bamber Bridge, Preston, PR5 8EB.

As an example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.

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

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property in Welling. Are there specific issues to bear in mind, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Purchasers in Welling should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects such as stone faces affect many stone-walled houses in Welling. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.
