About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kempston

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Kempston and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Kempston property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Kempston property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 18th Century barn conversion. Will the age of the residence be a problem?

Some buyers hope to own a old, characterful home one day. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can often be problematic. Kempston homes built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can mean long-term upkeep. Contact the building surveyor for more detail.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will a Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Kempston.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact just a kind of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is often found on Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Kempston Home Buyers Suveys commonly discover any number of problems for instance when movement of the underlying wall causes cracking of the surface

Another example of problems may result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Resolving problems can be dear as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.
