Home Buyers Survey in Riding Mill

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Riding Mill and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Riding Mill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works on the property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Riding Mill property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a property in Riding Mill. What effect will the residence's rafter roof have on maintenance?

Some buyers in Riding Mill have looked at purchasing property with real personality. Use of traditional methods, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Riding Mill property constructed with traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. If you are uncertain, speak to your RICS surveyor for further advice.

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor be looking for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Riding Mill.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact just a form of render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick to form a very smooth surface. It is very aesthetic and is found on Victorian buildings for example. it can be prone to defect and Riding Mill Homebuyer Reports commonly reveal defects for example, when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues may result from the burden of heavy load above such as cracking under the eaves. Re-covering Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Defective door frame

On a Riding Mill HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

The surveyor will confirm that all external doors work, assuming keys are available. Broadly speaking, the security offer by these doors will be reported on. A rotted, damp wooden door frame is an example. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.
