HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Bickley and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Bickley property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Bickley property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Bickley property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the mid-century home I am planning to lease it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a the surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

During a Bickley Home Survey the surveyor will mention the overall electrical system if it looks like they are in a hazardous state. A Surveyor is expected to focus on issues like ascertaining the condition of fitted appliances, for example water heaters or checking the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually be part of the survey in Bickley.

The IEE recommend that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition should be carried out every ten years (5 if renting out).

Damaged Render

What defects will a Surveyor take into account on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency house in Bickley which we wish to buy.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact a sort of flat finish render. Typically it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is was often applied to Regency buildings. it can be problematic and Bickley surveyors frequently show any number of problems such as lateral visible cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems might be when water below flashings which results in the render detaching. Re-applying Stucco problems may be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Conservation area

Are there any things we should check out if purchasing a house in Bickley in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Bickley need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any effect may have with the property. The value of homes is generally greater owing to the areas retaining original features.

Property surveyors will note whether the building looks to be within a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are conducted by your legal adviser.

Out of keeping developments to the property should be reported in the Bickley survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.
