HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Dockland Settlement and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Dockland Settlement property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Dockland Settlement property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Dockland Settlement which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really just a specific type of solid render. Typically it is applied to brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian and Regency homes. Stucco is often problematic and Dockland Settlement surveyors sometimes focus on issues such as lateral pattern like cracking that describes the lines of mortar in the brickwork

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when dampness under windows which results in detachment. Remedying

problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will rainfall have on our new property? Could damaged rainwater goods lower the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which wet conditions has on property is rarely paid due attention by buyers. For instance, spalling on walls around drainage strongly suggest that the gutters are damaged. Poor drainage can lead to damp and mould.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if caught early. If not cared for, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Dockland Settlement building with a loft conversion, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Which issues relating to the loft will be looked into for the survey?

This often causes anxiety for buyers. A large number of properties can be blighted by damage to the roof, including. Every element should be checked, e.g. concrete tiles. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of badly installed felting.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as wholesale replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a builder from the area a quote for any suggested work.
