Home Buyers Survey in Capel St Mary

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Capel St Mary and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Capel St Mary property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Capel St Mary property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to look into downspouts, and does our chartered surveyor mention it? Also, if there is damage, will they be expensive to fix?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on Capel St Mary homes are rarely paid due attention. If you have visited the house in on a clear day, issues may have been hidden, and may lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look out for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in Capel St Mary that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a kind of solid render. Normally it is layered over brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco render is highly appealing and is common on some Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Capel St Mary surveyors commonly highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when movement of the underlying wall causes cracks. Other issues might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads above such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Resolving problems can be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the home in Capel St Mary we plan to buy - What should we do?

Buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Signs may not be obvious, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal of infected furniture.
