HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hamworthy property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Hamworthy property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. How do we investigate further?

Pests like bed bugs may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Hamworthy.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through

beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for pest problems may include chemical treatment and removal of infected furniture.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor give details on the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the system. This will include the mains gas installation at the building, as well as gas related fittings such as fireplaces. Any gas fittings won't actually be taken off. Gas is potentially deadly, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the RICS Surveyor look out for on a stucco Victorian home in Hamworthy.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is a specific type of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The finish is highly appealing and was common on some Victorian and Georgian homes. it can be prone to defect and Hamworthy Home Buyers Suveys can show potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when movement of the wall results in cracking of the surface.

Another example of problems might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-coating problems may be dear as the skills are becoming rarer.
