About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Godstone

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Godstone and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Godstone property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Godstone property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will your Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered regency house in Godstone that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a form of render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth flat finish. The coating is highly grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Georgian homes. It is very like plaster and mortar. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to animal fibres to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors sometimes detail any number of problems which might include trapped water culminating in the surface breaking. Other issues could include when the render is taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Re-coating problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need London brick repair advice, can a property surveyor in Godstone help?

Brick-constructed homes in Godstone demonstrate several benefits compared to other building materials, but they can also experience a number of issues, such as spalling. A defect requiring immediate attention is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Marley Lee Brickwork Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01628 825929 or Unit 12 Brook Business Centre/Cowley Mill Rd, Cowley, Uxbridge, UB8 2FX.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornate Della Robbia bond paving.
