Which Home Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Stevenage

    The Homebuyer Report should be selected if buying a property constructed from conventional materials i.e. brick & tile, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Stevenage

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Stevenage) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional e.g. timber wall houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Stevenage

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This report is typically chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Stevenage and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stevenage property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Stevenage property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

English Heritage

Earthworks In Boxwood is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local importance can enhance the desirability of an area. Examples of other nearby monuments of interest are The Six Hills Roman Barrows, Walkern Bury Ringwork and Whomerley Wood Moated Site..

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will your Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered regency home in Stevenage which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really just a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick hardens to a smooth stone like surface. It is very appealing and is common on some Regency buildings for example. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very like plaster and mortar. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as plant fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Stevenage commonly report issues for instance trapped moisture resulting in the surface breaking.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might include when the application is taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Re-covering problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
