Home Buyers Survey in Lickey End

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Lickey End and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Lickey End property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Lickey End? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this? Could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that the impact rain can have on homes in Lickey End is ignored. If you have visited the home in dry conditions, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that gutters are a cause for concern include rotten roofing elements. Blocked rainwater goods can result in damp and mould.

Whether buying in Lickey End or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a property. Will the residence's age be an issue?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning a home with character, such as a cottage. A building's age, however, can create issues for homeowners. Lickey End structures built with traditional methods can be challenging to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for Lickey End listed buildings, Traditional materials may be required. This may result in higher ongoing expenses. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the RICS surveyor for more detail.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a house but are worried about insects. Will a property surveyor look into this?

Homes in Lickey End are not usually impacted by serious cases of infestations, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. This concern should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Damaged Render

What will the Lickey End Surveyor look for on a stucco coated regency home in Lickey End.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually just a sort of flat finish solid render. Normally stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Lickey End sometimes discover potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance horizontal visible cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath. Other issues could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-covering Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
