Home Buyers Survey in Chapeltown

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Chapeltown and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Chapeltown property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Chapeltown property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Surveyor examine on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Chapeltown that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just a form of solid render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is highly attractive and is was often applied to Georgian properties. The composition is similar to plaster. Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Chapeltown commonly show defects e.g. when it is exposed to driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems might result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Remedying problems can be difficult as renderers are getting more difficult to find.

Chimney stacks

On a Chapeltown HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Chapeltown home. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any home purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property. A fairly common example may be loose, missing or deteriorated mortar. Section E elements should be examined where appropriate. An apartment may not need such an inspection.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will the surveyor make for a home with Sussex bond brick? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick structures in Chapeltown will suffer from both minor and serious issues. One problem often found is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Potter Brickwork Ltd of Nortex Business Centre/105 Chorley Old Rd, Bolton, BL1 3AS on 01204 465530.

Buyers in Chapeltown should consider that a number of popular courses and methods have been used for centuries. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. Consider renegotiating the price of the Chapeltown property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

House Prices

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a house next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: commercial waste material disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns like gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Chapeltown RICS surveyors will note structural issues linked to the site. Your legal representative will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological data sets and Sheffield Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
