HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Booker and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Booker property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the Booker property, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Booker property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be looking for on a stucco coated regency home in Booker which we wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact just a type of solid render. Normally stucco render is applied to red brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is very beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency homes. Stucco is very similar to plaster to work with. It used to contain lime in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors sometimes show defects which can include trapped water culminating in problems with damp. Other issues may be when the render has been taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course. Remedying problems may be difficult as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I upgrade to full structural survey before investing in a defective forties cottage close to Booker?

Structural surveys are now dubbed the Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a non period unmodified house assembled from typical building materials. The Building Survey is the most suitable type of survey for the property described. Approximately 3 days after a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the surveyor's formal report is dispatched to the purchaser providing thorough and relevant advice on the state of repair of the building. There are certain provisos with a Building Survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Booker house - such as removing roof space contents. The following table for more info home buyers surveys in Booker.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a property. What consequences will the building's wooden structure have on repairs?

Some buyers have considered buying property with real personality. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Booker homes employing traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for property in a conservation area, Traditional materials may be required. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your surveyor for further advice.

Mixed from clay and straw, wychert gives many old buildings in the county their distinctive white appearance. Examples of wychert building can be found in Booker and throughout Buckinghamshire.
