HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Spondon and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Spondon property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Spondon property's general condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I'm unsure about the justification to order the full structural survey when considering a un-loved terraced home in Spondon as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly called the Structural Survey, this survey is no longer offered as it has been given a new moniker by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the right name is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a 60 year old or less unmodified Spondon house assembled from standard construction materials and methods. The RICS Building Survey is certainly the most appropriate one to go for the house mentioned. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough site survey of all accessible areas, a formal written report will be emailed and posted to the buyer detailing comprehensive and far-reaching insight

about the state of repair of the house. There are certain limitations with any survey insofar as a chartered surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Spondon building e.g. undoing electrical fittings. The following table for more about the differences between surveys.

Damaged Render

What will my RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated house in Spondon which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a kind of smooth render. Typically it is layered over red brick that dries to a smooth stone like surface. The coating is highly attractive and is common on some Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Spondon surveyors sometimes reveal issues such as horizontal pattern like cracking revealing the mortar joints underneath.

Another example of problems may be when moisture beneath windows which results in detachment. Remedying problems with stucco can be expensive as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in a house we used to own, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Which issues relating to the loft will be considered?

Spondon properties in good condition can still be subject to roof maintenance problems, such as missing tiles. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar ties to clay tiles. Your surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Spondon roofing contractor can provide one.
