HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Lower Clapton and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Lower Clapton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the Lower Clapton property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Lower Clapton property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to opt for the full structural survey when acquiring a converted Victorian townhouse near Lower Clapton as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often still called a Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been replaced by RICS and the right name is now the Building Survey. If you are buying an unusual home such as an extended house, it is the right RICS survey to get. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a 60 year old or less unmodified Lower Clapton house of standard construction materials i.e. brick and tile. Following an exhaustive inspection of any accessible parts, the chartered surveyors report will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the buyer going through any significant details on the construction materials used on the home. There are one or two provisos with any survey because RICS chartered

surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Lower Clapton house e.g. removing roof space contents.

In order for home buyers to get an accurate home valued is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Lower Clapton that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really dense render. Usually it is layered over underlying brick that dries to an even finish. Stucco render is highly attractive and is often found on Regency homes. it can be problematic and Surveyors sometimes detail any number of problems such as dampness trapped behind paint

Another example of problems may be when moisture below DPCs which causes the render detaching. Re-applying Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.
