HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Muswell Hill and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Muswell Hill property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Muswell Hill property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Muswell Hill Surveyor be looking for on a stucco coated regency home in Muswell Hill.

Stucco is really just a kind of smooth render. Typically stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. The coating is very grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Muswell Hill surveyors can reveal defects for instance lateral cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints

Another example of problems may be when dampness beneath sills that results in the render detaching. Re-coating problems with stucco may be difficult as the skills are getting harder to find.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to pest problems can include use of insecticides or removal of infected furniture.
