HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Cheslyn Hay and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Cheslyn Hay property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Cheslyn Hay property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor examine on a stucco coated regency home in Cheslyn Hay that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact smooth type of solid render. Commonly stucco is applied to underlying brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. It is highly attractive and is was often applied to Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Cheslyn Hay Building Surveys sometimes report defects e.g. horizontal visible cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints

Another example of problems might be when dampness below sills that causes large areas of detachment. Remedying problems can be difficult and costly as renderers are becoming rarer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about pests in the area - What advice should we get?

Pests like carpet beetle larvae may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Cheslyn Hay.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Signs may not be obvious, for example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. As some pests can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If you strongly suspect an issue with carpet beetle larvae, or any pest, speak to your property surveyor

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that bowing had been a concern - What should we look into during the survey?

This is a common concern for purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many residential properties could unfortunately be experiencing problems like incorrectly applied waterproofing. Every element should be checked, e.g. decking. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Cheslyn Hay, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Cheslyn Hay will look for a range of signs, including amateur repairs.

The expense of thatching, 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. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
