HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Thames View and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Thames View property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Thames View property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Thames View property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an old dovecot. Will the residence's age be a concern?

Many buyers plan to buy a home with character. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Thames View property featuring traditional methods can be difficult to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Traditional materials may be required.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the unmodernised property we intend to acquire we think we noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, does a Thames View Homebuyer Report go into detail on the electrics?

When preparing a Thames View Home Survey a qualified surveyor will typically report on the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a poor state of repair. The RICS surveyor should also focus on possible problems relating to things like reporting on the state of fixed electrical appliances, e.g. heaters or verifying the condition of a sample of switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Thames View.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest a periodic test is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Damaged Render

What will the Thames View Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency house in Thames View that we intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact a sort of flat finish solid render. Commonly stucco is applied to underlying red brick hardens to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is very grand in appearance and was often found on Regency buildings. it can be prone to defect and Thames View Home Buyers Suveys can highlight issues for example, horizontal visible cracking that describes the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems might be when dampness below DPCs that results in detachment. Resolving problems can be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.
