Home Buyers Survey in Quinton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Quinton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Quinton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give comprehensive details of the Quinton property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor consider on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Quinton which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is just a kind of smooth render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is highly aesthetic and is/was common on some Regency houses. It is almost exactly the same as plaster. It used to contain lime in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Quinton Home Buyers Suveys commonly highlight defects for instance when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Resolving Stucco problems can be costly as renderers are getting rarer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about vermin on the road - Do we need a residential surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Regrettably, pests can impact a home's worth and carry serious health risks. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for insect infestation may include insecticides. Speak to an expert, e.g. Advantage Environmental Services Ltd, 1A Arden Road, Smethwick, West Midlands, B67 6AA on 0121 580 9229, for more detail.

Defective door frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a an amber light rating have on outside doors?

A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. An example defect for this is a rotted, damp wooden door frame. The surveyor will confirm that all external doors work where keys are available, but not forced open. Broadly speaking, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included.
