HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Church Village and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Church Village property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Church Village property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco house in Church Village which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just dense render. Usually stucco is applied to red brick to form an even finish. The coating is very attractive and is often found on Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Church Village surveyors sometimes report any number of problems such as horizontal hairline cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick.

Another example of problems could be when moisture below windows which causes large areas of detachment. Resolving Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the property in Church Village we plan to buy. Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Buyers in Church Village should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for an infestation may include chemical treatment and destruction of tainted materials. The property surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us in a house we used to own. What aspects of the roofing will be investigated?

This often causes anxiety for Church Village home buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. A large number of properties can be blighted by roofing problems, such as. From fascias to collar ties, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. Factors like amateur repairs are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Church Village, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Church Village contractor can provide one.
