Home Buyers Survey in Frome

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Frome and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Frome property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Frome property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor mentioned that the had been issues with rotten beams - What should we investigate as part of the survey?

This is often asked by property purchasers who know that homes can be hiding serious damage to the roof, including. From dormer windows to ceiling joists, all aspects of the roof will be considered. Your building surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Re-flashing and re-tiling, among other aspects of roof repair, can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Call Shergold & Fellowes of 12 Sambourne Gdns, Warminster, BA12 8LS on 01985 219575 for a quote.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will my Property Surveyor look out for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Frome that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually dense render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth flat finish. Stucco render is highly appealing and is common on some Georgian homes. It may have lime in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Frome sometimes highlight issues which might include trapped water resulting in the render failing. Other issues could include sulphate attack from salts sucked out of underlying brickwork. Re-coating Stucco problems may be costly as the skills are getting harder to find.
