HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Ravensthorpe property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Ravensthorpe property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated Victorian home in Ravensthorpe that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just a form of render. Normally it is layered over underlying brick hardens to an even finish. It is highly grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian buildings. It is almost exactly the same as mortar (sand and cement) to apply. It used to contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can show any number of problems for example, when it is faced with constant driving rain which becomes saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Resolving Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited a property we are hoping to acquire we saw that there was no RCD on the fuse board - will the Ravensthorpe surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When conducting a Ravensthorpe Home Buyers Survey the surveyor should add detail on the electrical system if it is clear that they are in a hazardous state.

This will include a visual check of any uncovered areas of the wiring as well as issues like confirming the state of any fixed appliances like electric showers or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of switch gear. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a Periodic Inspection be conducted every ten years (5 if letting out).

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it necessary to commission a full structural survey prior to acquiring an abandoned, Edwardian warehouse apartment near Ravensthorpe?

Structural surveys are now dubbed Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified apartment made out of typical building materials. A Building Survey is definitely the appropriate one to choose for the apartment described. Around 3 days following an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal report will be sent to the purchaser providing in depth and crucial insight about the construction of the house. There will be several no go areas with the survey insofar as a RICS surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the of the Ravensthorpe apartment such as removing secured hatches.
