Home Buyers Survey in Chalfont St Peter

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Chalfont St Peter and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Chalfont St Peter property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Chalfont St Peter property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Chalfont St Peter? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, wet weather and the effect it can have on buildings in Chalfont St Peter are not given the attention it deserves by buyers. If you have only visited the house in good weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. This can lead to water damage.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost. If not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Surveyor be focused on, on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Chalfont St Peter that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really dense render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick that dries to an even finish. The effect is very grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Chalfont St Peter sometimes discover issues for instance when movement of the wall leads to cracking of the surface

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the eaves. Re-applying problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Chalfont St Peter. Is there any Flemish Diagonal bond maintenance tips we should be aware of??

Brick-walled Chalfont St Peter conversions can indicate a number of issues, such as signs of movement. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Shaun Gale of Oak View/Sandy La, Verwood, BH31 6BZ on 01202 826020.

Brick-build property are used in properties built throughout the ages, leading to a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture.

If the Chalfont St Peter surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
