Home Buyers Survey in Whitnash

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Whitnash and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Whitnash property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Whitnash property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco coated house in Whitnash that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact just a type of solid render. Normally it is applied to brick that dries to an even finish. The finish is highly grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Regency homes. It is similar to any other render. It may have lime in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Whitnash commonly show defects such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues could result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Resolving problems may be surprisingly expensive as renderers are getting harder to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a Whitnash property. What can we do?

Scare stories about property pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as wasps as minor annoyances. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies to pest problems can include use of poison or removal of infected furniture. If you strongly suspect an issue with wasps, or any pest, speak to your RICS surveyor
