Home Buyers Survey in Fishponds

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Fishponds and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Fishponds property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Fishponds property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we opt for the full structural survey if purchasing a neglected forties home in Fishponds rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Periodically and incorrectly called the Structural Survey by many, it is no longer offered has actually been renamed by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. This is the most appropriate RICS survey when purchasing an unusual property e.g. a neglected house. It will detail thorough and significant information about the buildings construction and uses as well as any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house.

Damaged Render

What problems will your RICS Surveyor examine on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Fishponds that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a form of render. Typically stucco render is layered over red brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian houses. Stucco is often problematic and Fishponds Building Surveys commonly detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, horizontal pattern like cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems can possibly result be when dampness below windows that causes the render detaching. Re-covering problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.
