HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Broadclyst and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Broadclyst property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Broadclyst property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Property Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered regency home in Broadclyst that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact dense solid render. Commonly it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is very beautiful and is often found on Victorian and Georgian properties for example. It is very like plaster. it can be problematic and Surveyors sometimes focus on any number of problems e.g. when it is faced with on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and

prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Fixing problems can be expensive as renderers are becoming harder to find.

Gas flame

Will a Broadclyst surveyor go into detail on the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

Your chartered surveyor will visually examine any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas (and oil heaters) where relevant, as well as gas affiliated fixtures, for instance associated asbestos. However, the Broadclyst chartered surveyor will not remove any external fittings and won't carry out any tests of any kind on the gas system. Most people are aware that gas can be hazardous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it the right choice to choose a full structural survey prior to acquiring a shabby, Victorian penthouse apartment in Broadclyst?

Building Survey has now superseded the Structural Survey following its renaming some time ago by RICS. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a non period unmodified Broadclyst apartment assembled from typical construction materials. You should opt for the RICS Building Survey for the apartment referred to. There are some limitations come with any residential survey as a qualified surveyor wont be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the property nor can they comment on efficiency of gas installations.
