HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Bushey and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Bushey property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Bushey property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Bushey surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how does the surveyor work it out?

Homebuyer Reports include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To fully consider the valuation your chartered surveyor will pair local property market knowledge and other things relating to the property for instance: state of repair.

The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR)

can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there aren't any costly legal issues like access to the property over estate roadways. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor.

Further Bushey conjectures like service connections, are made in addition to environmental problems like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Chartered Surveyor take into account on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Bushey.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually just a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco is layered over brick that sets to a very smooth surface. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is often found on Georgian properties for example. It is very similar to plaster to apply. it can be prone to defect and Bushey Building Surveys frequently highlight issues such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-applying Stucco problems may be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could heavy rain have on our new home in Bushey?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rainfall has on property is not given the attention it deserves by property buyers. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase in good weather, issues may have been hidden. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
