HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bradley Stoke and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bradley Stoke property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Bradley Stoke property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a property in Bradley Stoke, does the building survey look for flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Times), and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a residential property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The survey report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and

may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

No recent Bradley Stoke flood alerts have been found (source: Environment Agency).

Damaged Render

What problems will the Chartered Surveyor take into account on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Bradley Stoke.

Stucco is really just a form of solid render. Normally stucco render is applied to underlying brick to form an even finish. It is very attractive and is often found on Victorian and Regency properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Bradley Stoke surveyors can report issues for instance lateral hairline cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath. Other issues could be when water beneath DPCs that causes the render detaching. Fixing problems with stucco can be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Conservatory

On a Bradley Stoke HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects impacting 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

In Bradley Stoke, examples include loose railings. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will be considered too. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the impact on the property individual defects may have. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage.
