About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Houghton Regis

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Houghton Regis and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Houghton Regis property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Houghton Regis property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated Victorian home in Houghton Regis that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a kind of smooth solid render. Typically it is layered over brick that sets to a very smooth surface. The effect is highly attractive and is was often applied to Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Houghton Regis Home Buyers Suveys frequently detail issues e.g. when movement of the wall leads to cracks

Another example of problems may result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads above such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Remedying Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are getting harder to find.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the Houghton Regis surveyor inquire into flooding, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Houghton Regis house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and owning a house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the property survey may advise on urgent repairs.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house in Houghton Regis or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house in Houghton Regis is at risk.
