Home Buyers Survey in Newington

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Newington and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Newington property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Newington property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Newington. What will we need to bear in mind when buying an older property? What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Use of traditional methods can create issues for homeowners. Newington homes employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced. This can mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. Built in around 1678, Newington House in Newington is an example of a traditional Post Medieval-period property.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this Tudor property is in poor condition - what should we do?

Brick-constructed property in Newington do benefit from many advantages, but they can also suffer from distinct issues. This could be anything from vertical cracking to inadequate damp-proofing. For example, sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat and may require immediate attention. Contact several local builders for quotes, including S J Brickwork of 45 Kingfisher Dr, Greenhithe, DA9 9RT on 01322 313932.

One example is header bond or basket weave bonds are both used in Newington property. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
