HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Laceby and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Laceby property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Laceby property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Laceby House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor advise on the state of the gas heaters?

A will locate and visually look at any easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route as part of the Laceby survey, in addition to gas connected appliances or installations, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). Should there be any external fittings or housings they will not be taken off. Needless to say, gas can be dangerous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor take into account on a stucco regency home in Laceby that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually just dense render. Normally it is applied to brick hardens to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. It is very aesthetic and is found on Victorian houses. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors commonly focus on issues such as when it is faced with on-going weathering which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other potential problems could result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Fixing problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay more money for a full structural survey when considering a flat in Laceby?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed as the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a mid 20th century of later unmodified Laceby flat assembled from typical construction materials and methods i.e. brick and tile. A Building Survey is definitely the most relevant choice for the property described.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is supplied to the client giving thorough and crucial details concerning the construction of the flat. There are certain limitations come with the survey - a local Laceby surveyor is not authorised open up the fabric of the flat or investigate the internal state of any flues. Also flats frequently make a full survey more complicated meaning a surveyor can only look into the actual flat the surveyor may provide an opinion shared areas such as evidence of movement to the building.
