HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Knutsford and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Knutsford property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Knutsford Surveyor consider on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency home in Knutsford.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Typically stucco is layered over underlying brick that dries to a smooth stone like surface. Stucco render is very attractive and is/was found on Georgian properties. It may contain lime in it in addition to animal fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Knutsford surveyors commonly focus on defects which can include trapped moisture resulting in the surface falling away. Other issues might involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet bricks. Re-applying problems may be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.

I am buying a home near Holford Hall Moated Site , will this affect the property's value?

Holford Hall Moated Site is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest will usually add to the attractiveness of an area. Other nearby sites of interest include Hulme Hall Moated Site and Swineyard Hall Moated Site.. The surveyor will consider all local criteria when conducting home buyers survey in Knutsford. Visit the English Heritage website for more information on Holford Hall Moated Site.

Defective door frame

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

All doors leading outside are checked, assuming keys are available. In general, the type and condition of the property's windows are included in the report. Delamination, for example, is included in Section E.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the impact on the property individual defects may have. An 'amber' condition rating of 2 implies that some repair work is needed to arrest further decay, but this may not be urgent. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.
