Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Gosforth and which would be cheaper?

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Monk bond repair tips - can the surveyor assist?

Brick-built conversions do benefit from many advantages, but they will also be affected by distinct issues, including DPC failure and sulphate expansion. Your chartered surveyor should report on these, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. A defect requiring immediate attention is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Hester R B may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Lands End/Landsend La, Twyford, Reading, RG10 0UE or 0118-934 5200.
