Looking for a Property Survey ? Which one should you opt for?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Leamington Spa

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice if you are buying a property constructed from standard materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Leamington Spa) will also be conducted by a RICS accredited surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this for non standard e.g. wood frame houses.

    This is an independent valuation . It is often chosen by cash buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Leamington Spa and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Leamington Spa property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Leamington Spa property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials including asbestos blocks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. You should not endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors

cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Leamington Spa building survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Leamington Spa Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Leamington Spa that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is a specific type of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco is very aesthetic and is often found on Georgian houses. It is very like mortar in its nature. It may contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as animal fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Leamington Spa can reveal issues e.g. when it is exposed to driving rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems might result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Re-coating Stucco problems can be difficult as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when buying an older property? Will the age of the property be a problem?

Many purchasers plan to buy a home with character. Older construction methods and materials, however, can create difficulties for an owner, and Leamington Spa structures built using traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for Grade I listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations.
