Home Buyers Survey in Whitefield

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Whitefield and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Whitefield property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Whitefield property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will your Property Surveyor be focused on, on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Whitefield which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is a kind of render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is highly attractive and is common on some Victorian houses. The composition is very like plaster to apply. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Whitefield surveyors sometimes highlight issues for example trapped moisture resulting in the render failing needing repair. Other potential problems might include when the application has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the DPC. Fixing problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation - Do we need a residential surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for a serious infestation may include chemical treatment.
