HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Fareham and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Fareham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Fareham property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give buyers in Fareham a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention.

Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Mechanical damage to a conservatory roof is one example.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a house in Fareham (PO16) for an asking price of £206, 714. What things does a Fareham RICS surveyor allow for when conducting a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on property values ranging from the potential for development to the condition of shared common parts. It is useful to analyse house values recorded in Fareham for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £215, 914, which is £9, 200 more than the amount you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £205, 617. 44, Holly Grove, Fareham, Fareham, Hampshire, PO16 7UP a detached property sold for £315, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get an impartial property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part. A RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Damaged Render

What defects will a Chartered Surveyor look out for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) semi detached home in Fareham that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually just a type of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is highly beautiful and is common on some Regency properties. It can have lime in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Fareham Building Surveys commonly report any number of problems for example trapped water leading to the surface breaking requiring costly repairs. Other issues might include attack from sulphates sucked out of brickwork. Re-covering problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
