Home Buyers Survey in Ewloe

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Ewloe and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Ewloe property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Ewloe property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a residential surveyor look for flooding, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: BBC News). If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the home survey may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Ewloe, and think we saw signs of vermin in the kitchen. What should we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This issue should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious, for example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for an infestation may include use of poison. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will a Ewloe property surveyor make for a 30s home with Sussex bond brick?

Brick-built converted property feature several advantages, but they will also show signs of distinct issues, including erosion and vertical cracking. A problem regularly identified is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Stead Building Services may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 47 Swinnow Cr, Stanningley, Pudsey, LS28 6NZ or 07880 738112.

Brick-build property have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques.

If the Ewloe 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.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Ewloe with stone walls create issues? Which major problems should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Hopton Wood Limestone to Orton Scar Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This often needs repointing. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be looking for on a stucco Victorian home in Ewloe.

Stucco is really just smooth type of solid render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick to form a smooth and even finish. It is highly grand in appearance and was often applied to Georgian buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Ewloe surveyors commonly discover any number of problems for example, horizontal pattern like cracking that describes the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other issues might result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-coating problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

Gas flame

Will a Ewloe surveyor report on the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include the condition of the meter at the building, as well as gas related appliances, for instance flue/chimney maintenance. A Ewloe RICS surveyor won't remove fittings nor will they conduct any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Of course, gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
