Home Buyers Survey in West Molesey

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the West Molesey property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the West Molesey property's general condition as well as advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would need to be wary of if intending to buy a property in West Molesey near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local council.

A Building Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any relation may have with the property. The price of property tends to be higher which is down to conservation areas being preserved. However a large number have fallen into a poor state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Property surveyors will advise you whether the property is possibly classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping modifications to the property may be reported in the West Molesey survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Damaged Render

What will your Surveyor examine on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in West Molesey that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact just smooth type of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a smooth and even finish. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and West Molesey Home Buyers Suveys can discover any number of problems such as when movement of the wall causes cracking of the surface. Other potential problems could result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the eaves. Resolving problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages of carrying out a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys no longer exist anymore Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. When intending to buy a modified house - such as a neglected house, it is now the most appropriate survey to get. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if investigating a non period unmodified property assembled from typical building materials. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a written report is supplied to the prospective purchaser outlining in depth and notable professional advice concerning the standard of construction and repair of the house. There will be several restrictions with any residential survey to bear in mind as a qualified RICS surveyor is not able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the West Molesey house e.g. moving heavy furniture.
