HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Crosby and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Crosby property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Crosby property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Crosby property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor check out the safety of the gas flues?

The RICS surveyor will visually look at any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) at the home, in addition to gas associated fittings e.g. balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Your Crosby chartered surveyor will not remove external fittings nor will the surveyor carry out any tests whatsoever on the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, if you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Damaged Render

What will your Property Surveyor be focused on, on a stipple rendered (stucco) home in Crosby which we wish to buy.

Stucco is just a kind of render. Normally it is applied to brick to form a smooth stone like surface. The coating is very grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian buildings. Specialists say that it is similar to plaster. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to animal fibres to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors sometimes discover defects which might include trapped moisture resulting in internal damp problems.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might include when the application has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Resolving Stucco problems may be difficult as renderers are becoming rarer.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I should be wary of if purchasing a flat in Crosby in conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess knowledge of local considerations and the connection they have on the property. The value of homes will probably be enhanced due to conservation areas being unspoilt.

RICS surveyors can be expected to note if the house looks to be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Crosby Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted during the legal process. Unconsented changes to the property should be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.
