HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Hook and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Hook property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Hook property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

English Heritage

We are intending to purchase a home near Odiham Castle , will this affect the property's value?

Odiham Castle is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest will usually increase the desirability of an area. Examples of other sites of importance include The Battery.. A RICS surveyor will consider all local and regional factors when conducting homebuyer report in Hook. Visit the English Heritage website for further information on Odiham Castle.

Damaged Render

What will my RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency home in Hook that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a form of render. Commonly it is applied to brick that sets to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The finish is highly aesthetic and is found on Victorian buildings. Sometimes it can have lime in it in addition to a grid underneath to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Hook commonly detail issues for example trapped moisture resulting in the render failing. Other issues could include attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet bricks. Re-covering problems with stucco can be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Conservatory

In the HomeBuyer Report what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

One example would be sagging railings. This section covers conservatories and porches. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will also be mentioned in the report.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a residence. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Hook home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.
