HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Ilfracombe and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

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

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Ilfracombe property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Ilfracombe that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a sort of flat finish solid render. Commonly stucco render is layered over underlying brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is very aesthetic and was often applied to Georgian houses for example. It is very similar to mortar. it can be prone to defect and Ilfracombe surveyors sometimes discover defects for example, when it is faced with constant driving rain which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems might result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Re-coating problems can be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor warned us that access to the loft could be something to worry about, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our building surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This is a common concern for house purchasers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many homes can still be subject to problems like dry rot. From decking to ceiling joists, the roof structure as a whole should be investigated. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Ilfracombe, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Call Exmoor Roofing & Building Services of Homestead/Ilkerton, Barbrook, Lynton, EX35 6PH on 01598 753888 for an estimate.

House Prices

Is £226, 709 within the right sort of area price to buy a detached property in Ilfracombe in EX34 for and what factors will qualified surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Ilfracombe during a professional valuation ?
