HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Lound and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Lound property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Lound property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will your RICS Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated Victorian home in Lound which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just a type of render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is very grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Regency buildings. it can be prone to defect and Lound Building Surveys sometimes detail defects such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems could result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-covering problems with stucco can be dear as renderers are getting harder to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about an infestation affecting some homes. Do we need a house surveyor?

Buyers in Lound should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to insect infestation can include use of insecticides or destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that deteriorated flashing had been a concern. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Will access to the attic be an issue?

Property in Lound in otherwise fine condition can be hiding serious roofing problems. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked. Factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Lound, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
