HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Fulham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Fulham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Fulham property's general condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to do the full structural survey when investing in a un-loved fifties cottage in Fulham over a HomeBuyer Report?

Very Often still called a Structural Survey by many, it is now defunct and and has been superseded by RICS and the correct name is actually now the Building Survey. If you are buying an unusual Fulham property e.g. a tatty house - this is now the most suitable selection of survey. This survey spells out full and frequently critical details concerning the buildings construction materials as well as any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of the accessible parts.

Damaged Render

What problems will your Fulham Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Fulham.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just a type of render. Typically stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Regency houses for example. it can be problematic and Fulham Home Buyers Suveys sometimes report any number of problems e.g. water trapped behind paint. Other issues may be when dampness gets in under sills that causes large areas of detachment. Re-applying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting more difficult to find.

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Fulham home, what are common defects an red light rating impacting conservatory and porches?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the home's construction.

Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will be considered too. Missing railings is an example of this.
