HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Fareham and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Fareham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Fareham property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will a Chartered Surveyor look out for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) semi detached home in Fareham that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually just a type of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is highly beautiful and is common on some Regency properties. It can have lime in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Fareham Building Surveys commonly report any number of problems for example trapped water leading to the surface breaking requiring costly repairs. Other issues might include attack from sulphates sucked out of brickwork. Re-covering problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the thirties house I am hoping to acquire, it appeared that there is an unsafe electrical system - will a surveyor report on the electrical system?

When conducting a Fareham Home Survey the home surveyor will typically remark on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a dangerous state of repair. This will include an overview inspection (without removing any fittings) of the open areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other potential areas for concern such as checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey in Fareham. Looking at any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE suggest an electrical check need be completed every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would be advised to on guard for if purchasing a flat in Fareham near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local councils.

A Building Surveyors need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection they have with the building and its value. The price of property tends to be inflated because of them retaining original features. However a large number have fallen into poor condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors can be expected to inform you if the home looks to be is so classified and Section I of the Fareham Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unsympathetic changes to the property should be reported in the Fareham survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.
