HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Faversham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Faversham property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Faversham property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated detached house in Faversham that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco is applied to underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. The coating is highly attractive and is/was found on Victorian and Georgian properties for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors commonly reveal defects which can include trapped water resulting in the surface breaking. Other potential problems might involve sulphate attack from salts derived from wet brickwork. Fixing problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the mid-century home I am meaning to buy I noticed that there is an old fuse board , does a surveyor report on the general state of the electrical system?

During a Faversham Homebuyer Report a RICS surveyor should usually add detail on the state of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a hazardous state. The RICS surveyor is expected to possible problems relating to things like verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. A check for the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey in Faversham .

The IEE advocate a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay a higher price for a full structural survey on a flat in Faversham?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now called the Building Survey. If you are planning to buy a modified Faversham flat e.g. an older flat - this is now the best choice of home survey. It spells out comprehensive and often critical insight on the property's condition on top of any important technical details, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts. Also flats add complexity. - so the surveyor can only look into the actual flat although he/she go into detail about other tenant shared sections of the property like shared hallways.
