About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hornchurch

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Hornchurch and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Hornchurch property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the Hornchurch property's condition as well as including information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Hornchurch. What recommendations will a surveyor in Hornchurch make?

Brick-constructed residences demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also experience numerous defects. For instance, damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork and should be taken very seriously. Contact ABC Brickwork & Scaffolding Ltd for a repairs estimate at 01256 364846 or 25 Pyotts Hill, Old Basing, Basingstoke, RG24 8AR.

One example is common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Hornchurch.

Stucco is in fact a specific type of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Regency properties. it can be prone to defect and Hornchurch Building Surveys can highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance lateral visible cracking that describes the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems may be when water below sills that causes the render detaching. Re-applying problems may be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.
