Home Buyers Survey in Blakeney

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Blakeney and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Blakeney property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Blakeney property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Blakeney, what directions can you offer for a property constructed with Diagonal bond walls? Does brick decay faster in Blakeney weather?

Blakeney brick-walled houses can indicate various issues and defects, from erosion to sulphate expansion. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report. One serious matter is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Baines Warren at 29 Sulby Dr, Ribbleton, Preston, PR2 6RR should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07803 165653.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornate Della Robbia bond paving, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a Blakeney HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of Condition rating 2 defects affecting 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

An example defect for this is a blistered or 'alligatoring' roof covering. Roof coverings are checked, provided that access is possible. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report.

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos paper lining affecting the property. What is asbestos and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. asbestos blocks. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good fire retarding properties, it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls. Technically all forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to disturb it and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Blakeney building survey. They will note the risk of asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.

Damaged Render

What will the Blakeney Surveyor take into account on a stucco Victorian house in Blakeney that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick that sets to an even finish. Stucco render is very attractive and is common on some Victorian buildings. it can be problematic and Blakeney surveyors sometimes highlight defects such as lateral hairline cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Resolving Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
