HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Magor and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Magor property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Magor property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco house in Magor which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually a type of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco render is highly appealing and is found on Victorian homes. it can be prone to defect and Magor Building Surveys commonly detail any number of problems for instance horizontal hairline cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when moisture enters beneath flashings that causes detachment. Re-coating Stucco problems may be expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Magor, and think we saw signs of vermin in the hallway. What should we do?

Properties are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Signs may not be obvious, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to pest problems can include traps. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Building Surveys on houses

Can you please explain the argument to opt for the full structural survey if buying a modified mid terrace bungalow near Magor as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit recurrently still described as Full Structural Surveys by many home buyers they have actually been superseded by Building Surveys A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a mid century or later unmodified house of conventional building materials. A RICS Building Survey is certainly the advisable selection in relation to the house mentioned. After an exhaustive survey of the accessible areas of the house, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is posted to the client running through any notable information concerning the construction of the house. There are certain limitations with any survey because a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Magor building such as removing loft contents.
