HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Llansamlet and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Llansamlet property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Llansamlet property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Llansamlet which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact a type of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. It is highly grand in appearance and is found on Regency properties. it can be prone to defect and Llansamlet surveyors sometimes discover issues for example, when movement of the wall leads to cracks.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Fixing problems can be difficult as skilled tradesmen are getting harder to find.
