About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Woodbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Woodbury and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Woodbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Woodbury property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 19th Century barn conversion. Will repairs costs be higher?

A building's age can worry purchasers, and Woodbury property featuring traditional methods can be challenging to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor consider on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian semi detached home in Woodbury which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a form of solid render. Commonly it is layered over brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is very attractive and was common on some Victorian and Regency properties. It used to have lime in it in addition to animal fibres to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Woodbury surveyors frequently show issues such as trapped water resulting in the render failing which need attention. Other issues could include attack from sulphates or salts absorbed from bricks. Resolving problems with stucco can be expensive as renderers are getting harder to find.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Woodbury, and can a Woodbury RICS surveyor investigate indications of water damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of owners in Woodbury and across the country, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a residential property through several routes, including loose patio doors. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residential property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The RICS surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier if the residential property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
