About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kenton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Kenton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kenton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations on the Kenton property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kenton property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

For the Kenton HomeBuyer Report what are the usual Condition Rating 1 defects affecting 'E9 - Other' ?

In Kenton, an example may be rot and insect damage to a porch or conservatory's structure. This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

Damaged Render

What will your Chartered Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco home in Kenton.

Stucco is really a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco render is layered over red brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly beautiful and is often found on Victorian and Regency buildings. it can be problematic and Kenton Home Buyers Suveys frequently highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks

Another example of problems could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-coating problems with stucco can be difficult as renderers are becoming rarer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us - What aspects of the roofing will be reported on?

Properties in Kenton with no other major issues could feature difficulties with the roof, for example, damp. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from tie beams to gables. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
