HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Millom and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Millom property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Millom property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor examine on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Millom that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly aesthetic and is/was was often applied to Victorian buildings for example. It is almost exactly the same as any other render. Sometimes it can have lime in it as well as animal fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Millom Home Buyers Suveys frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated prone

to damage from frost. Other issues might result from the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Remedying Stucco problems may be dear as renderers are becoming harder to find.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would be advised to on guard for if buying a converted house in Millom inside a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess knowledge of relevant local considerations and any connection they have on the property and its value. Values is generally more than prices outside the area which is down to them being unspoilt. However a growing number have fallen into poor condition e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Property surveyors are expected advise you whether the property is/might be so designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by your solicitor. Unsympathetic adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Millom? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this?

I find it odd that the effect which rainfall has on a property is rarely paid due attention. One indication that drainage are at risk is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. This could then result in damage to foundations.

In most cases, this is usually easy to fix, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
