About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Norwood

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Norwood and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Norwood property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Norwood property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Norwood Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick wall advice, can a surveyor in Norwood help?

Brick residences show signs of a range of defects, such as erosion. A problem regularly identified is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Contact Osbourne R W for a repairs estimate at 01474 704157 or Ash Rd, Hartley, Longfield, DA3 8HA.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornate Della Robbia bond paving. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Stone block wall damage

Can homes built with stone cause problems for the buyer? What should we look in to, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of homes. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like displacement will vary with the particular type of stone. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Norwood should be able to supply local stone.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor check out the serviceability of the gas flues?

Yes. Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the mains gas installation as part of the survey, in addition to gas affiliated gas installations in the house like balanced flues. Any external fittings or housings will not be undone. Of course, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.
