Home Buyers Survey in Upton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Upton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Upton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations on the Upton property, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Upton property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Upton building survey search for flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Upton Upton house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a HomeBuyer Report will inform your decision. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The HomeBuyer Report may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The home surveyor may ask the agent if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered regency home in Upton which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just smooth type of solid render. Typically stucco render is applied to red brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is highly grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian properties for example. It is almost exactly the same as plaster or mortar. It may contain lime in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Upton Building Surveys sometimes show any number of problems for example trapped water leading to damp problems requiring costly repairs. Other issues may be when the stucco is taken down to ground level and bypasses the DPC. Fixing problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a barn conversion in Upton. What consequences will the unusual construction have on maintenance?

The age of a structure can create difficulties for an owner, and Properties featuring traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. Speak to your surveyor for further advice. As an example of Medieval building, Upton Hall in Upton was constructed in around 1513.
