HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Covent Garden and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Covent Garden property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Covent Garden property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older cottage in Covent Garden. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning property with real personality. Vernacular architecture, however, can concern buyers, and Covent Garden property built using traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea.Speak to your Covent Garden surveyor for further advice.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be an infestation at the property we're buying, but we are not certain. What should we do?

Any questions about pests affecting a Covent Garden house may not be asked by the lawyer. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your property surveyor.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will your Chartered Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco coated home in Covent Garden.

Stucco is in fact just a specific type of render. Usually stucco is applied to underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. Stucco is very attractive and is common on some Victorian buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors commonly detail any number of problems for instance water trapped beneath paint.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when water under DPCs that results in large areas of detachment. Re-applying problems may be difficult as the skills are becoming rarer.
