HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Ryton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ryton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Ryton property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will a Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco Victorian home in Ryton.

Stucco is actually just a kind of render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick to form a smooth and even finish. The effect is very attractive and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian homes. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors frequently report defects for example, lateral pattern like cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath.

Another example of problems can possibly result be when moisture enters below windows that results in large areas of detachment. Fixing problems can be dear as the skills are getting rarer.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a Ryton HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of Condition rating 2 defects affecting 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

In Ryton, examples include evidence of improperly installed multiple layers of single ply plastic roofing. As part of Section E2, these elements will be checked by the surveyor, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Ryton, and will the HomeBuyer Report investigate water damage, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a Ryton home will be secure against floods. Both home buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Ryton home in question is in danger. The house survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The property surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
