Home Buyers Survey in Coulsdon North

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Coulsdon North and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Coulsdon North property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you comprehensive details of the Coulsdon North property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Coulsdon North. What aspects of the attic will be reported on?

This is often asked by buyers in Coulsdon North who know that homes could feature difficulties with the roof, for example, sagging beams. From collar ties to rafters, every element of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Coulsdon North, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian home in Coulsdon North.

Stucco is really just a type of solid render. Typically stucco is applied to brick to form a smooth flat finish. It is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian houses. Stucco is often problematic and Coulsdon North Home Buyers Suveys commonly highlight any number of problems e.g. dampness trapped under paint.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when water under sills which results in the render detaching. Remedying problems can be surprisingly expensive as renderers are getting harder to find.
