HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Lixwm and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Lixwm property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Lixwm property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the house I am intending to lease I think we saw that there is an unsafe electrical system, does a Lixwm survey report on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Lixwm Building Survey a RICS surveyor will typically make a note on the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a less than satisfactory state. Your surveyor will also issues like examining the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any documents from any recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advise that a Periodic Inspection Report be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we need to verify if intending to buy a building in Lixwm inside a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local council.

A Building Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and any bearing they have on the building. House prices are generally higher because of them retaining their original character.

Surveyors are trained to advise if the planned purchase is/might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Unconsented modifications to the property may also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian home in Lixwm.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth solid render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick to form an even finish. The finish is highly aesthetic and is/was was often applied to Georgian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Lixwm Home Buyers Suveys frequently focus on defects e.g. lateral visible cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other potential problems might result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-covering Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
