HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Horley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Horley property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Horley property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will your Chartered Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian detached house in Horley which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is very appealing and is was often applied to Regency properties. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water and hardens to a dense solid. it can be

problematic and Horley Homebuyer Reports commonly discover any number of problems which can include trapped water resulting in problems with damp

Another example of problems may involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts sucked out of underlying brickwork. Re-applying problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it the right choice to commission a full structural survey prior to buying an abandoned thirties home near Horley?

Structural surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. If buying an altered Horley house - such as a neglected house - this is now the most appropriate choice. A Building Survey summarises crucial details concerning the buildings construction and uses and any maintenance needs a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts of the house. External buildings will also be inspected during the survey.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about vermin - Is a Building Survey advisable?

Pests like ants may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Horley.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to an infestation can include removal of infected furniture. If you strongly suspect an issue with ants, or any pest, speak to your surveyor
