HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Edgwarebury and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Edgwarebury property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications on the Edgwarebury property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Edgwarebury property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a farmstead. Will the house's age be a problem?

Many purchasers hope to own a home with character. For houses in Edgwarebury built before the 20th Century, age, however, can sometimes be an issue. Houses constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Edgwarebury listed buildings. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller warned us that access to the loft could be an issue. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What will our surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Property in and around Edgwarebury in otherwise fine condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof. From rafters to ridge flashing, all aspects of the roof will be considered. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as replacing rotten rafters or soffits) 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. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local contractor can provide one.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Edgwarebury Surveyor take into account on a stucco regency house in Edgwarebury that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact a smooth and flat render. Normally stucco is layered over brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly appealing and was common on some Regency homes. Stucco is often problematic and Edgwarebury Homebuyer Reports can report potentially expensive to remedy problems such as dampness trapped behind paint (assuming painted).

Another example of problems associated with stucco may be when moisture below sills that causes large areas of detachment. Remedying Stucco problems can be costly as skilled tradesmen are getting harder to find.
