Home Buyers Survey in Whiston

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Whiston and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Whiston property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Whiston property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be focused on, on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Whiston which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just a kind of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over underlying brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is highly attractive and is found on Regency houses. it can be problematic and Whiston Homebuyer Reports can report any number of problems such as horizontal pattern like cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems could be when moisture below windows that results in detachment. Resolving problems with stucco can be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the past. What should we do about roof repairs?

Residential property in Whiston that are otherwise ideal can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof like. From decking to tie beams, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. The surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as thatching) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A roofing contractor can provide an estimate.

Other external areas of the property

On a Whiston HomeBuyer Report, what does a Condition rating 2 mean for factors covered in Section E?

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. This may not be urgent, however. An example defect for this is rot and insect damage to conservatory joists. The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information.
