Home Buyers Survey in Shepton Mallet

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Shepton Mallet and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Shepton Mallet property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Shepton Mallet property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Shepton Mallet. Is there any brick chimney maintenance advice we should be aware of?? Does render make a difference?

Brick conversions in Shepton Mallet will suffer from distinct issues, ranging from thermal movement to frost damaged pointing. The house surveyor will cover these in his report, with feedback. One particularly serious issue is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. C & D Bricklaying Specialists Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01452 854460 or 26 Cranham La, Churchdown, Gloucester, GL3 2NN.

Brick-constructed property have been used across the country for centuries, leading to a good selection of methods and styles. As an example, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. 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.
