HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Hanworth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Hanworth property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Monk bond repair advice - can a Hanworth property surveyor assist?

Brick-built Hanworth buildings do benefit from many advantages compared to other types of construction. Unfortunately, they also be affected by numerous defects, including frost damage and spalling. One problem often found is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Stonecraft Brickwork may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 4 Home Farm Cl, Tadworth, KT20 5PQ or 01737 373210.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Hanworth.

Stucco is actually just a form of solid render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. It is highly beautiful and is often found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be problematic and Hanworth surveyors frequently report defects e.g. when movement of the wall can lead to cracks that allow for water penetration.

Another example of problems may result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying problems with stucco can be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Substandard guttering

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Hanworth house what impact will a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

The rainwater goods are inspected by eye. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system. Missing downspouts is an example of a Section E defect.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the property. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.
