Home Buyers Survey in Astwood Bank

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Astwood Bank and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Astwood Bank property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you comprehensive details of the Astwood Bank property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages for conducting the full structural survey in Astwood Bank instead of a HomeBuyer Report when looking into a shabby bungalow?

Although regularly referred to as Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike, these comprehensive surveys are now entitled Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid 20th century of later Astwood Bank house assembled from typical construction materials. The Building Survey is definitely the proper survey to choose for the house mentioned. Subsequent to a thorough survey of any accessible parts a written report (digital and written copy) will be sent to the purchaser setting out any far-reaching advice on the condition of the house. There are certain limitations with any survey as a RICS surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the of the Astwood Bank house - such as undoing electrical fittings.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Astwood Bank that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco render is layered over red brick to form an even finish. The finish is very appealing and is was often applied to Victorian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Astwood Bank Homebuyer Reports sometimes reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems such as horizontal visible cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Resolving problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
