HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Shadwell property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Shadwell property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Shadwell that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact just smooth type of render. Normally stucco render is applied to underlying red brick that sets to a smooth stone like surface. It is very aesthetic and is common on some Victorian houses. it can be problematic and Shadwell surveyors commonly highlight any number of problems for example, water trapped behind paint coatings which cannot escape leading to worsening damp issues.

Another example of problems could be when moisture gets in under flashings that results in large areas of detachment requiring raking back

and reapplying. Remedying Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as craftsmen are becoming more difficult to find.

House Prices

There is a house in Shadwell. What things does the surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Shadwell ?

There is a near endless list of things that can affect house prices, for example the total square meterage of the home or the modernity of the kitchen. .

In order to get a formal home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Shadwell which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component. Your qualified surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to opt for a full structural survey when looking into a abandoned thirties property in Shadwell over a HomeBuyer Report?

Often called a Structural Survey by many, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been reclassified by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is now the Building Survey. When buying an unusual Shadwell property, for example a tatty house, the Building Survey is now the right choice. It portrays thorough and often critical information concerning the property's state of repair in addition to any technical details, following a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the house. There are a few provisos with the survey as a local surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the Shadwell house - such as lifting up fitted carpets.
