Home Buyers Survey in North Somerset

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in North Somerset and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the North Somerset property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the North Somerset property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will your Property Surveyor look for on a stucco regency house in North Somerset that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually smooth type of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a smooth and even finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is/was was often applied to Georgian houses. Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a grid underneath to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and North Somerset Home Buyers Suveys can highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for example trapped water leading to problems with damp. Other potential problems could involve attack from salts absorbed from bricks. Resolving Stucco problems can be difficult as craftsmen are becoming harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Sussex bond repair tips - can you assist? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick North Somerset buildings will suffer from numerous defects. For example, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and may require immediate attention. James Alan should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01305 759673 or 102 Abbotsbury Road, Weymouth, DT4 0AG.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface).
