HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hyde and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Hyde property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hyde property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco coated Victorian detached house in Hyde that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. It is highly appealing and is common on some Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Hyde

commonly reveal any number of problems for example trapped water resulting in internal damp problems. Other issues could involve sulphate attack from sulphates sucked out of brickwork. Fixing problems with stucco can be difficult as skilled tradesmen are becoming more difficult to find.

Chimney stacks

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

Possible defects are visually inspected from the ground if access to the roof cannot be arranged. Loose, missing or deteriorated mortar is an example of a Section E defect. Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed, but regular upkeep may still be required.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Hyde surveyor check flooding damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Met Office), and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via badly fitted air bricks. An awareness of characteristics of the Hyde area likely to affect the property also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.
