Home Buyers Survey in Rossendale

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Rossendale and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Rossendale property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension on the Rossendale property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Rossendale property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External walls

For the Rossendale HomeBuyer Report what does 'E4 - Main walls' refer to?

For a Rossendale property, one issue is decaying masonry on veneer walls. All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for property purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a house or flat. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the property. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Damaged Render

What defects will a Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Rossendale that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Commonly it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth flat finish. The coating is very beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Rossendale Home Buyers Suveys commonly show any number of problems which might include trapped moisture leading to internal damp problems.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could include attack from sulphates or salts absorbed from bricks. Fixing problems with stucco can be costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
