Home Buyers Survey in Coombe Warren

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Coombe Warren and which is cheaper?

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

If the Coombe Warren property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Coombe Warren property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller mentioned that the had been issues with a leak, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our property surveyor in Coombe Warren investigate during the survey?

Coombe Warren residences in otherwise fine condition can often hide problems like missing tiles. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar ties to eaves. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Coombe Warren, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors will look for a range of signs, including a poor asphalt covering.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A Coombe Warren roofing specialist with good feedback can provide a quote.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian home in Coombe Warren that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a kind of render. Typically it is layered over underlying red brick hardens to a smooth stone like appearance. The coating is highly attractive and is/was common on some Victorian properties. it can be prone to defect and Coombe Warren Homebuyer Reports frequently focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, dampness trapped behind paint coatings. Other issues may be when dampness below DPCs which results in the render detaching. Resolving Stucco problems may be difficult as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I go for a full structural survey if purchasing a defective sixties townhouse near Coombe Warren instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently described as a Structural Survey by some, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been replaced by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the proper name is now the Building Survey. This is the best home survey if buying an unusual house e.g. a neglected house. The report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) specifies far-reaching details concerning the buildings construction materials in conjunction with any important technical details after a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts of the house.
