Home Buyers Survey in West End

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in West End and which would be cheaper?

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

If the West End property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the West End property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) house in West End that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a form of render. Typically it is applied to brick to form a smooth stone like appearance. The coating is very grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian houses. it can be prone to defect and West End surveyors sometimes focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, water trapped beneath paint. Other issues might be when water gets in under flashings which causes large areas of detachment. Re-applying problems with stucco may be difficult as renderers are becoming harder to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in West End. What aspects of the roofing will be considered?

West End residences in good condition can still be subject to difficulties with the roof, for example, damp. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar beams to sheeting. Your chartered surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor advise on the state of repair of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the meter is in an escape route as part of the West End survey, as well as gas related appliances/installations e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The West End qualified RICS surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings and will not run any tests whatsoever on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate that all landlords must to conduct appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .
