HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Kenilworth and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kenilworth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Kenilworth property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect can a Condition rating 2 have on 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

External doors are checked where keys are available, but not forced open. In general, the security offer by these doors will be reported on. Deformation of the door or frame is an example.

Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the property in question will need some work. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Damaged Render

What will your Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Kenilworth that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is smooth type of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. The effect is highly attractive and is common on some Victorian properties. It is very similar to plaster to apply. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as plant fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Kenilworth Homebuyer Reports commonly discover defects e.g. when it is faced with on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems may result from the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Remedying problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are becoming rarer.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I order a full structural survey prior to purchasing a shabby forties live-work maisonette in Kenilworth?

Structural surveys have a new name and are now entitled Building Surveys. When contemplating the buying of a modified maisonette such as a period Kenilworth maisonette - this is the correct survey to get. After a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, the RICS surveyors report will be supplied to the prospective buyer giving any crucial information in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the house. There are several limitations with the survey because a RICS surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the Kenilworth maisonette for example removing secured panels.
