About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Anston

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Anston and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Anston property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Anston property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Anston property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a residential property and the estate agent has made us aware that it has been partially constructed with Forest of Dean stone. Are there specific defects to consider?

Purchasers in Anston should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects affecting stone-built properties can vary, delamination being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco Victorian home in Anston.

Stucco is actually just a kind of smooth render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick to form a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is very appealing and is was often applied to Georgian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Anston Building Surveys commonly discover any number of problems for example, lateral pattern like cracking that describes the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other issues might be when water below sills which results in the render detaching. Resolving problems with stucco can be costly as skilled tradesmen are getting harder to find.
