HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Highnam and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Highnam property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to consider downspouts? Can damaged downspouts decrease our property's value?

Both in Highnam, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which rainfall has on a structure is rarely considered properly. As an example, mildew or damp in the roof suggest that the rainwater goods are worth a closer look. Poor drainage can lead to rising damp.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to remedy. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Damaged Render

What problems will your Property Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency home in Highnam which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really dense render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and even finish. The coating is very appealing and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency houses. It is very similar to plaster or mortar in its constituency. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Highnam sometimes report defects e.g. when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems may result from the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Re-covering problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.
