HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Quedgeley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Quedgeley property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Quedgeley property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Quedgeley Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Quedgeley Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Quedgeley.

Stucco is really just a kind of render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is highly attractive and is found on Georgian houses. It is very similar to plaster to apply. it can be problematic and Quedgeley Building Surveys can report issues for instance when it is exposed to driving rain which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Re-covering problems can be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Are there any things I need to be aware of if planning to buy a property in Quedgeley in a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by local authorities. Quedgeley surveyors need to have knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection may have on the building. Property Prices is, more often than not, more than prices outside the area which is down to them being in good order. However a growing number are falling into disrepair e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors will report if the home is or might be is so classified and Section I of the Quedgeley Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unauthorised changes to the building may also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer. Davies and Partners are based in Rowan House, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, GL4 3RT and may be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 01452 612345

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an old property. Will the age of the structure be a problem?

For traditionally-built Quedgeley property, age can create issues for homeowners. Structures built using traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea.
