HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Shepperton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Shepperton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Shepperton property's general condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to investing in a neglected forties house in Shepperton?

Structural surveys are now known Building Surveys. If you are buying a modified house like a neglected house, this is the best survey to choose to get. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if buying a post 1950s Shepperton home made out of typical construction materials and methods. Subsequent to an exhaustive inspection of any accessible parts, a formal report will be sent to the prospective purchaser detailing any far-reaching information about the condition of the house. There will be certain restrictions with a property survey because the surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Shepperton house e.g. removing loft contents. This page for a simple guide on home buyers surveys in Shepperton.

House Prices

There is a property in TW17 with an asking price of £174, 163. What things does the surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Shepperton ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on the price of property for instance whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or the local crime statistics. It may help to look at flat prices achieved in the area for similar properties. The average flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £197, 063, which is £22, 900 more than the selling price. The average for houses and flats was £395, 957. 3, Andrews Gate, Shepperton, Spelthorne, Surrey, TW17 0AP a new build leasehold apartment recently sold for £170, 000 .

The most reliable way to get a professional house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A professional RICS surveyor should actually visit the home in addition to allowing for any other location variables that can affect the value of property.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency detached house in Shepperton.

Stucco is really just a type of solid render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a very smooth surface. Stucco render is highly aesthetic and was found on Regency houses. it can be prone to defect and Shepperton Building Surveys can report defects e.g. trapped water leading to internal damp problems.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may include attack from salts sucked out of bricks. Fixing problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
