HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chesham Bois and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Chesham Bois property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Chesham Bois property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated Victorian house in Chesham Bois.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact dense render. Normally it is applied to red brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is very aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency homes. It is similar to plaster in its constituency. Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Chesham Bois Home Buyers Suveys can highlight defects for instance trapped moisture leading to the surface breaking which need attention.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when the render is taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Re-covering Stucco problems can be difficult as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting rarer.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor give details on the serviceability of the gas appliances?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually examine any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated installations for example - chimney breasts or flues. External fittings or housings won't be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, if you have any worries about gas of any type, call a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate that all landlords are obligated to conduct appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are criminal .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Chesham Bois property will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a rebuilding cost. To estimate the property's value your chartered surveyor will take into account experience of property in Chesham Bois and other considerations relating to the property for instance: square metres The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and draw upon other assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, such as access to a flat or connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like the property being underneath a flight path, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
