HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Uxbridge Common and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Uxbridge Common property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Uxbridge Common property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our RICS surveyor look for water damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Uxbridge Common Uxbridge Common home is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and house buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Uxbridge Common property enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The RICS surveyor will usually recommend that the house buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

No flood warnings were made for Uxbridge Common, according to the Environment Agency.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Uxbridge Common Surveyor look out for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in Uxbridge Common.

Stucco is actually just a sort of flat finish solid render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick to form a smooth flat finish. The coating is highly aesthetic and is common on some Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can report defects e.g. damp trapped under paint (assuming painted). Other issues can possibly result be when dampness enters beneath sills which causes detachment. Re-covering problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the home we are planning to buy it looked like there is old wiring. Does a Homebuyer Report in Uxbridge Common write anything on electrical defects?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Uxbridge Common a qualified surveyor will typically add detail on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a dangerous state. The RICS surveyor should also issues like the location of the fuse board .

Verifying the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey. A check for the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey in Uxbridge Common .

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