HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Lytchett Matravers and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Lytchett Matravers property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Lytchett Matravers property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor consider on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Lytchett Matravers.

Stucco is really just smooth type of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick to form a smooth and even finish. The effect is very appealing and is found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. Stucco is very like plaster and mortar to work with. It may contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to animal fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other potential problems could result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Fixing problems can be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we would be advised to be aware of if purchasing a converted house in Lytchett Matravers in conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local council.

Values will likely be higher owing to them being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas have fallen into shoddy condition for example - the excessive amount of traffic management signs

RICS surveyors will advise you whether the building could be is designated and Section I of a Lytchett Matravers Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by your legal adviser.
