HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Langland and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Langland property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Langland property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my RICS Surveyor examine on a stucco Victorian house in Langland that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just dense solid render. Normally stucco is layered over underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is highly aesthetic and is common on some Victorian homes. Stucco is often problematic and Langland Building Surveys commonly focus on defects such as horizontal hairline cracking that describes the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems associated with stucco can possibly result be when dampness gets in beneath DPCs that results in detachment. Resolving problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting rarer.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the home I intend to move into, the agent said that there is an unsafe electrical system, will the Langland surveyor report on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Langland Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor will typically add detail on the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in a dangerous state of repair. A Chartered surveyor will also issues like verifying the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Langland.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does heavy rain have on our new house in Langland? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Both in Langland, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately wet weather and the effect it can have on a structure are not given enough thought by house purchasers. One indication that rainwater goods are blocked is mildew or damp in the roof.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. Where this is left untreated, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
