HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Bursledon and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Bursledon property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Bursledon property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I pay more for a full structural survey for an apartment ?

Building Survey has taken over the Structural Survey following its reclassification a couple of years ago by RICS. The Building Survey is now the right choice if buying an unusual property, for example an older Bursledon house. It outlines crucial insight on the property's construction as well as any technical details, shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.

Damaged Render

What will the Bursledon Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Bursledon that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a type of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over underlying red brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very attractive and is common on some Victorian and Regency houses. It is similar to plaster to work with. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Bursledon frequently detail any number of problems for example, when stucco is exposed to driving rain which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying Stucco problems may be difficult as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Bursledon? Will the house surveyor report on this? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rain can have on property is overlooked by property buyers.

Signs that drainage are at risk include corroded downspouts. If you suspect a problem, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost.
