HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hanworth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Hanworth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Hanworth property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property in Hanworth built Ham Hill stone. What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I should look into if buying a converted house in Hanworth in a conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Hanworth need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and any relation may have with the property. Prices is, more often than not, significantly higher due to them retaining their original character.

Property surveyors will advise if the property looks like it may be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer. Richard Kanani & Co are based in 4 Cranmer Road, Richmond upon Thames, London, TW12 1DW might be able to advise further. Tel: 020 8941 8363

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Hanworth.

Stucco is actually just a form of solid render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. It is highly beautiful and is often found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be problematic and Hanworth surveyors frequently report defects e.g. when movement of the wall can lead to cracks that allow for water penetration.

Another example of problems may result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying problems with stucco can be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.
