HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Waterhouses property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Waterhouses property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my RICS Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated house in Waterhouses that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco render is layered over underlying red brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco render is very attractive and was found on Georgian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Waterhouses surveyors sometimes focus on issues e.g. when movement of the wall leads to cracks

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying Stucco problems can be dear as renderers are becoming harder to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about vermin in the house we plan to buy. What advice should we get?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Waterhouses home may not be raised during the conveyancing. This concern should be taken seriously.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for a serious infestation may include professional cleaning or destruction of tainted materials. If you believe house longhorn beetle, or any pest, may be present, request that your property surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Waterhouses, and can a Waterhouses Waterhouses surveyor check for water damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Waterhouses and nationwide, is a serious concern for property owners. Both home purchasers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the home survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.An awareness of characteristics of the Waterhouses area likely to affect the home also enables the home surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the agent, but this information may not be accurate.
