HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Brown Edge and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brown Edge property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Brown Edge property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Brown Edge Home Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco coated regency house in Brown Edge that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a kind of smooth render. Usually it is layered over brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. It is very beautiful and is found on Victorian properties. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors sometimes detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when movement of the underlying wall can lead to cracks

Another example of problems may result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-coating Stucco problems may be dear as renderers are becoming rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented - saying there may be asbestos cement sheets in existence at the property. What is asbestos, can it be easily dealt with and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including water tanks. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in sprayed on coatings. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb it and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Brown Edge HomeBuyer report. They will mention the risk of asbestos risks and should recommend relevant tests.

House Prices

There is a detached house in ST6 - Brown Edge with an asking price of £157, 450. What considerations will a qualified RICS surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Brown Edge ?

Any number of issues that can affect the price of property for example whether the property is mortgageable or the direction the house faces. It may help to put side by side house values achieved in Brown Edge at the same time for similar houses.

The average house price registered between July and October in 2012 was £138, 150, which is £19, 300 less than £157, 450 - the amount you buying for. 56, Knypersley Road, Stoke-On-Trent, Stoke-On-Trent, Stoke-On-Trent, ST6 8HX a detached property was purchased for £97, 000 .

In order for you to get an accurate and professional home valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. A local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A chartered surveyor will always visit the site as well as allowing for the large variety of area factors that have a bearing on property prices.
