Home Buyers Survey in Stony Stratford

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stony Stratford property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Stony Stratford property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we look out for when purchasing a building constructed in 1770 in Stony Stratford? What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a house with personality, like a farmstead. A building's age, however, can concern buyers. Structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.If you are uncertain, speak to your surveyor for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick wall upkeep guidance - can a property surveyor in Stony Stratford assist?

Brick-built Stony Stratford conversions feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also be affected by numerous defects. The Stony Stratford surveyor should report on these, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Cox D J, 69 Hemsby Rd, Chessington, KT9 2DY on 020 8391 2156 for a quote for repair work.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor consider on a stucco rendered regency home in Stony Stratford which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a type of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. It is highly attractive and is common on some Georgian homes. It is similar to plaster in its nature. It used to contain lime in it as well as a grid underneath to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can detail any number of problems for example trapped moisture leading to the surface breaking

Another example of problems may be when the application has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC. Resolving Stucco problems may be expensive as craftsmen are becoming rarer.
