HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Horsford and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Horsford property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Horsford property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems at our old property. What should we check when the house is surveyed?

Houses in Horsford with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer damage to the roof, including. From the purlins to the ridge flashing, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as felting a flat roof) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A local roofing specialist with a recommendation from a friend or family member should be able to assist with a quote.

Defective door frame

On a Horsford HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

External doors are checked where keys are available, but not forced open. In general, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included. Blocked drainage holes is an example of this. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any property buyers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco regency home in Horsford that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact a kind of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick to form a smooth stone like appearance. It is highly attractive and is common on some Victorian and Georgian homes. It is very like plaster in its constituency. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors commonly highlight issues such as when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems might result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-coating problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting harder to find.
