Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Lyndhurst.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really just a kind of solid render. Normally stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. It is very attractive and is was often applied to Georgian homes. It is very like mortar (sand and cement). Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a grid underneath to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Lyndhurst Home Buyers Suveys sometimes reveal any number of problems which can include trapped moisture culminating in problems with damp needing repair. Other issues could include when the render has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC. Re-applying problems can be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.

To estimate the correct valuation your independent surveyor will pair knowledge of Lyndhurst as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also examine construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions such as it is connected to mains services.

A RICS Level 3 Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
