Home Buyers Survey in Stockley Park

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Stockley Park and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Stockley Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Stockley Park property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get London brick guidelines for upkeep for the Tudor house we are buying? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed conversions in Stockley Park feature several advantages, but they can also be subject to numerous defects, such as erosion. Your house surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with directions for remedy. One particularly serious issue is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. A local builder should be able to assist. Call D & R Brickwork, 1 Pinner Rd, Pinner, HA5 5QZ on 07956 152058 for a quote for repair work.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks, to the rare, such shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a Stockley Park HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.

Section E2 defects are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. A cracking asphalt roof is an example.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco house in Stockley Park which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really just a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco render is very grand in appearance and is common on some Regency houses. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Stockley Park sometimes highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks. Other potential problems may result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-applying problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I would be advised to look into when intending to buy a flat in Stockley Park near a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local councils. Surveyors in Stockley Park need to have local knowledge of relevant local considerations and any bearing may have with the home and its value. House prices will be more than prices outside the area because of the areas being preserved.

Surveyors can be expected to note if the property could be in a conservation area and Section I of the Stockley Park Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping extensions to the property should be reported but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.
