HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Hemsworth and which is the cheapest?

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

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

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Hemsworth property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 15th Century dovecot in Hemsworth. Will upkeep costs be higher?

A property's age can sometimes be an issue. Hemsworth structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. Contact your surveyor for more information.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may damp weather have on our new house in Hemsworth? Will the house surveyor report on this? Also, if there is work that needs to be done, will they be disruptive to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rainfall can have on properties is overlooked. If you have investigated the property on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that drainage systems are at risk include water pooling below gutters. This could then result in damp and mould.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix. However, if the drains are not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Hemsworth Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) home in Hemsworth which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact a sort of flat finish solid render. Commonly stucco is applied to red brick to form a smooth and even finish. The finish is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency buildings. it can be problematic and Surveyors frequently report potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, damp trapped beneath paint (assuming painted). Other issues may be when water under sills which causes detachment. Remedying Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
