HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Longfield and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Longfield property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give comprehensive details of the Longfield property's condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Longfield House Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will my Chartered Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered regency house in Longfield that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick that dries to an even finish. Stucco is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian and Regency homes. It is almost exactly the same as plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can report defects such as when stucco is exposed to driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-covering problems may be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I would need to check on when buying a home in Longfield near a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Longfield are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and any effect may have on the property. House prices will be higher as a result of them retaining their original character. However a large number are falling into shoddy condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are expected advise you if the planned purchase is or might be within a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Out of keeping adjustments to the property may be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a sixties house I am planning to move into I think we saw that there were damaged electrical sockets, does a Homebuyer Report in Longfield go into detail on the electrics?

When performing a Longfield Building Survey a qualified surveyor should usually mention the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. A professional surveyor should also issues like reporting on the state of repair of fitted appliances, for example electric showers or checking the state of the visible wiring. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Longfield.
