Question about a house viewing

£0.00 @
I am viewing a house tomorrow and noticed in the picture there are some marks, does anyone know if they could be a sign of damp or anything similar? http://i.imgur.com/mOQlX2G.png Read More

Could be anything be easier to see close up. probably just where the wind and rain has taken the stones away.

Bit difficult to say as the picture is not very high res, it is likely just weathering to the masonry plaster and may need to be redone but nothing major, but hopefully someone on here can give you a better answer...

It would pay to have a survey done for peace of mind and a way to get the price reduced

Home survey (if you're buying) should pick up any damp issues but to me it looks like at some point the rendering has blown and has had a bad DIY repair.

Yep, we are getting a homebuyers report done so if there is anything amiss we can use it to negotiate on price.

Are you the OP too?

Hard to tell from the picture - but it just looks like someone has repaired the render by patching it up - it's hard to get the new and existing to match when doing this.

:D I was wondering this too, think I have found myself a wife

no, but thx for the answers, and will be getting a survey done if I make an offer that is accepted

I'd recommend a building survey if you really want the property and it is over 50 years old. Depending on condition inside. Homebuyers reports are very basic and don't cover a lot.
