Home Buyers Survey in West Harrow

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in West Harrow and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the West Harrow property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the West Harrow property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the West Harrow Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency home in West Harrow.

Stucco is really a sort of flat finish solid render. Normally stucco is applied to brick hardens to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is highly aesthetic and is common on some Victorian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can detail potentially expensive to remedy problems such as water trapped behind paint which cannot escape leading to worsening damp issues

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when water gets in beneath DPCs which results in the render detaching. Re-covering problems with stucco may be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting rarer.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I would need to check out when purchasing a home in West Harrow in conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in West Harrow are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local factors and any effect they have with the property and its value. Values will likely be more than prices outside the area as a result of them being unspoilt.

Property surveyors will tell you whether the building might be is so classified and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are carried out as part of the legal process. Unconsented extensions to the property should be noted but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.
