Home Buyers Survey in Baldock

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Baldock property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Baldock property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick chimney advice - can the surveyor assist? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Baldock brick-walled residences can be affected by numerous defects, ranging from cracks to inadequate damp-proofing. The chartered surveyor should report on these. One problem often found is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. RSK Brickwork at 32 Bronte Cl, Erith, DA8 1YB should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07840 097336.

Brick-constructed property have been used for centuries, leading to a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture. One example is Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond.
