HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Petersfield and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Petersfield property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Petersfield property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Petersfield Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Petersfield.

Stucco is really just a sort of flat finish render. Commonly it is layered over underlying brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. It is highly attractive and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency buildings. It is very like plaster or mortar. It used to contain lime in it as well as animal fibres to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Petersfield surveyors can discover issues for example trapped water leading

to the render failing needing repair. Other issues may include when the application is taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course. Remedying Stucco problems may be difficult as renderers are becoming rarer.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the unmodernised property we intend to move into, the agent said that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; will a Petersfield survey advise on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Homebuyer Report in Petersfield the surveyor should usually report on the condition of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a dangerous state. He or she should also give detail on things like the location of the meter. Inspecting any documents from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a farmhouse. Will the building's age be an issue?

Some buyers plan to buy a home with character, such as a barn conversion. For traditionally-built Petersfield property, age, however, can worry purchasers, and Properties built using traditional methods can be challenging to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. Built in the 16th century, 15 The Spain in Petersfield is a fine example of a Post Medieval-period house.
