HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Bexley and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Bexley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, you should you book a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Bexley property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

When acquiring an extended Edwardian cottage property in Bexley, is it necessary to upgrade to a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed by RICS as the Building Surveys. If buying an altered Bexley home like an unloved house - the Building Survey is the correct choice. It summarises comprehensive and significant advice about the buildings standard of construction and repair along with any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. External buildings will typically be inspected.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian detached house in Bexley which we wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact just a kind of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The coating is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian and Georgian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Bexley surveyors commonly reveal issues for example trapped water resulting in the surface breaking requiring costly repairs

Another example of problems associated with stucco could involve attack from salts derived from wet brickwork. Re-coating problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor check the state of the gas heaters?
