HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Common Edge and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Common Edge property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Common Edge property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. What should we do?

Pests like rats may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Common Edge. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for a serious infestation may include professional cleaning.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Common Edge, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Will access to the roof be difficult to arrange?

Common Edge residences in good condition will suffer issues with the roof like. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from valley gutters to sheeting. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Common Edge, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the property surveyors will look for a range of signs, including amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like laying tar paper or felt, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Common Edge builder can provide one.

Damaged Render

What will my RICS Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Common Edge that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a sort of flat finish solid render. Usually stucco render is layered over underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. It is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian buildings. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very like mortar (sand and cement). It used to contain lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Common Edge Home Buyers Suveys can highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for example trapped water leading to problems with damp needing repair. Other issues may be when the stucco is taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course. Remedying Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.
