Defective door frame

For the Brantham HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

An example defect for this is broken door glazing. All doors leading outside are checked where keys are available, but not forced open. Broadly speaking, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, with a minimum of technical jargon. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Severe defects impacting the

Brantham home are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a house's value.

Damaged Render

What will your RICS Surveyor examine on a stucco coated Victorian home in Brantham that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is a type of render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is very aesthetic and is found on Victorian and Regency properties. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Brantham can report issues such as horizontal hairline cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other issues could be when moisture gets in below windows which causes the render detaching. Remedying problems may be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting rarer.

House Prices

We are going to be investing in a property in Brantham. What will a RICS surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Brantham ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect the price of property e.g. the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the status of the central heating. .

The best way for you to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.
