Home Buyers Survey in Letchworth Garden City

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Letchworth Garden City and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Letchworth Garden City property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the Letchworth Garden City property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Letchworth Garden City property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the period property I am hoping to purchase, I noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - will a Letchworth Garden City Homebuyer Report write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Letchworth Garden City Home Survey your RICS surveyor will typically make a note on the electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state. Your surveyor is required to report back on issues like the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD). .

Examining the documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Letchworth Garden City.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Letchworth Garden City.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco render is very aesthetic and is was often applied to Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Letchworth Garden City Homebuyer Reports sometimes discover issues such as horizontal pattern like cracking that describes the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems might result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-covering Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are getting harder to find.
