Home Buyers Survey in Kings Lynn

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Kings Lynn and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Kings Lynn property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension on the Kings Lynn property, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer comprehensive details of the Kings Lynn property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) period home in Kings Lynn.

Stucco is actually a specific type of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a smooth flat finish. Stucco is highly grand in appearance and was found on Georgian properties. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is almost exactly the same as mortar (sand and cement) in its nature. It may contain lime in it as well as plant fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors frequently discover any number of problems such as trapped moisture culminating in problems with damp

Another example of problems could be when the application is taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Resolving problems may be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be powdery white asbestos duct connectors situated in the home. What is asbestos and are there any risks?

Asbestos was not banned until the late 90's therefore homes built before that date may have traces of asbestos. Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials e.g. boards around radiators. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in artex. It is mainly found in the US. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a one fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful however, never to damage it. Professional advice should be sought immediately. Removing it can be dear but absolutely must be carried out by experts. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Kings Lynn HomeBuyer report. They will report on possible asbestos and should inform you of the options.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Diagonal bond walls on this Edwardian terrace has deteriorated - what should we do?

Brick-constructed houses in Kings Lynn do benefit from many advantages, but they can also be affected by various issues and defects, ranging from sulphate expansion to erosion. For example, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and may require immediate attention. For more information, contact a local builder, Mk Brickwork of 22/22/Blackwood Crescent, Blue Bridge, Milton Keynes, MK13 0LP on 07857 851463.

Kings Lynn home purchasers may need to consider that range of courses arrangements and colours have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. For example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
