HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Hersham and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Hersham property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Hersham property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor look for on a stucco regency house in Hersham.

Stucco is really just dense render. Normally it is applied to brick hardens to a smooth and even finish. The coating is highly beautiful and was found on Regency properties. it can be problematic and Surveyors can highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks. Other potential problems could result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Hersham structure with a loft conversion. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Which issues relating to the loft will be reported on?

Residential property in Hersham with no other major issues will suffer roof maintenance problems, such as dry rot. From ceiling joists to eaves, the roof structure as a whole will be taken into account. Your surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits in spending a bit more on a full structural survey in Hersham instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys no longer exist anymore as the Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. You should opt for a Building Survey in relation to the property you are considering. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a mid century or later unmodified house of normal building materials.

There are some provisos come with any residential survey as the Hersham based surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the property nor can they inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.
