HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Woodford Green and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Woodford Green property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Woodford Green property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a house in Woodford Green. Should we get a residential surveyor?

Homes in Woodford Green will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Treatment for an infestation may include insecticides and destruction of tainted materials. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Woodford Green home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. To ascertain an accurate value estimate your surveyor will use local property market knowledge and other considerations about the property e.g. accommodation The valuer will also consider construction type and make certain other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any compromising legal issues e.g. access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Further Woodford Green assumptions, such as use of communal facilities or services, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco house in Woodford Green that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is dense render. Usually it is layered over brick that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is very grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian and Regency homes. The composition is similar to plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Woodford Green can highlight defects for instance when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems could result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Re-applying problems can be difficult as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.
