HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Morecambe and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Morecambe property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Morecambe property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor examine the state of the gas supply?

A will locate and visually check out any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the mains gas installation at the building, as well as gas affiliated fixtures like balanced flues. If there are any fittings they won't actually be removed. Of course, gas is potentially deadly, should you have any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Morecambe home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Morecambe property will contain a property valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To properly appraise an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will factor in experience of property in Morecambe as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also reflect on construction type and use key assumptions like there being no major problems.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Morecambe conjectures, such as access to a flat or service connections, are made in addition to Morecambe environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will your Chartered Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Morecambe that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually a form of render. Normally stucco render is applied to underlying brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Regency buildings. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is similar to any other render to work with. It used to contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Morecambe Building Surveys can focus on any number of problems e.g. trapped water leading to the render failing.

Another example of problems might be when the render has been taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Re-covering Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
