HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Chaddesley Corbett property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Chaddesley Corbett property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor examine on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency home in Chaddesley Corbett.

Stucco is dense render. Commonly it is applied to brick that sets to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is very beautiful and is often found on Georgian houses. it can be prone to defect and Chaddesley Corbett Home Buyers Suveys commonly discover potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, lateral hairline cracking that describes the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other potential problems might result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Fixing Stucco problems may be difficult as renderers are getting more difficult to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property in Chaddesley Corbett but are worried about bugs. Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Pests like mice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Chaddesley Corbett. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious, for example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for pests may include destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour said that a leak had been a concern, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does a Chaddesley Corbett house surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Homes in the area that are otherwise ideal may be exposed to roofing woes, like sagging beams. From slates to tie beams, the whole roof will be considered. The surveyors in Chaddesley Corbett could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The expense of laying tar paper or felt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Chaddesley Corbett roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.
