Home Buyers Survey in Market Bosworth

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Market Bosworth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Market Bosworth property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Market Bosworth property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Kentish Rag stone-built properties be hard to upkeep. What factors must we watch out for, and what does the survey cover?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including algae. Issues including algae affect many stone-walled Market Bosworth properties. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This often needs repointing. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency house in Market Bosworth that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick that dries to an even finish. The finish is highly attractive and is common on some Georgian buildings. It is very like plaster and mortar in its nature. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to animal fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Market Bosworth frequently reveal issues for instance trapped water culminating in problems with damp.

Another example of problems might include when the stucco is taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Remedying problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick on this Tudor house is badly worn. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed homes demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also be subject to considerable issues. One serious matter is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Phase Brickworks Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 65 Woodford Rd, London, E7 0DJ or 020 8555 9991.

A great deal of variety of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. One example is Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond. 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.
