Home Buyers Survey in Whitton

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Whitton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works on the Whitton property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Whitton property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Whitton house, can you give examples of Condition rating 3 defects affecting outside doors?

Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.

All doors leading outside are checked if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. Generally, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included. Double or triple glazed doors where the glazing seal has been lost or broken, for example, would be reported here.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I need to look out for if planning to buy a building in Whitton near a conservation area?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Whitton need to possess knowledge of local considerations and any relation they have on the building and its value. The price of property will be enhanced because of them being in good order. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are expected advise if the house looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are raised during the conveyancing process. Unapproved developments to the property will also be advised but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated regency house in Whitton that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco is applied to underlying brick that dries to a very smooth surface. The effect is very grand in appearance and is/was found on Regency buildings for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Whitton Home Buyers Suveys can show potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when movement of the underlying wall can lead to cracks.

Another example of problems might result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Resolving Stucco problems may be dear as renderers are getting harder to find.
