About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kingswinford

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Kingswinford and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Kingswinford property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Kingswinford property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a stipple rendered (stucco) semi detached home in Kingswinford.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really just smooth type of solid render. Commonly stucco is applied to underlying brick to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings for example. It can have lime in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Kingswinford Building Surveys commonly detail any number of problems such as trapped moisture culminating in the render failing needing repair. Other issues could involve sulphate attack from sulphates derived from wet underlying brickwork. Re-coating Stucco problems may be dear as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it necessary to get a full structural survey prior to buying a converted, period loft flat in Kingswinford?

The Full Structural Survey is now dubbed a Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is enough if investigating a non period Kingswinford flat built out of normal construction materials. The Building Survey is certainly the right one to go for the flat described. Following an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is posted and emailed to you setting out comprehensive and serious insight on the condition of the building. There are several provisos exist with any survey as your surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the building for example, or comment on efficiency of gas installations. Furthermore flats often mean access to the building can be prevented meaning a surveyor is only able to check the actual flat although he/she also outline information about shared areas e.g. any alarm system.
