HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Emsworth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Emsworth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Emsworth property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a gatehouse. What effect will the home's unusual construction have on maintenance?

Many buyers would like to own a unique or characterful property. A property's age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Emsworth houses built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.

Damaged Render

What will the Emsworth Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered home in Emsworth that I wish to buy.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is a type of render. Usually stucco render is applied to underlying brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. It is very appealing and is common on some Victorian houses. Specialists say that it is almost exactly the same as mortar to work with. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors can reveal any number of problems e.g. when it is faced with on-going weathering and rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the supporting heavy loads above such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Fixing problems with stucco may be dear as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a property - What can we do?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Emsworth property may not be raised during the conveyancing. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. Evidence may not be easy to find, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to a serious infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
