HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Par and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Par property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Par property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice why not get a Par Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Window frame

On a Par HomeBuyer Report, what could a a green light rating mean for windows?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property buyers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible

to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. A sash window with a damaged mechanism, for example, would be reported here.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it the right choice to spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to purchasing a shabby, forties loft maisonette in Par?

The Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its new title a couple of years ago by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. If you are intending to buy an altered Par home such as a neglected maisonette - this is the most suitable home survey. Shortly after an exhaustive inspection of all accessible areas, a formal written report will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the purchaser providing in depth and crucial insight in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the house. There will be certain limitations with any survey insofar as your surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Par building for example lifting up floor coverings.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Par that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact smooth type of render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick that dries to an even finish. Stucco render is very grand in appearance and is common on some Regency homes. Specialists say that it is very similar to plaster and mortar to work with. It used to contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Par Homebuyer Reports can reveal defects such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems could result from the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Re-coating Stucco problems can be costly as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.
