HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in South Oxhey and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the South Oxhey property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the South Oxhey property's condition along with advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a ground floor apartment in South Oxhey, does the property surveyor investigate indications of flooding, or if other properties have been affected?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Met Office), and owning a house in South Oxhey in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before flooding occurs. Flood water can enter a South Oxhey property through several routes, including air bricks.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a South Oxhey property lies

within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Damaged Render

What will your South Oxhey Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in South Oxhey that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just a smooth and flat render. Normally stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. The finish is highly attractive and was common on some Regency homes. The composition is almost exactly the same as plaster. it can be problematic and South Oxhey Homebuyer Reports can reveal any number of problems such as when it is faced with constant driving rain which becomes saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are getting more difficult to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does rainfall have on our new property in South Oxhey?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rainfall has on South Oxhey homes is rarely paid due attention. If you have only visited the home in dry conditions, problems are unlikely to be visible. This could then result in overflowing or blocked sewage.

Whether buying in South Oxhey or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
