HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Netherne and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Netherne property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Netherne property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get an instant Netherne House Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Are there any things we should be conscious of if purchasing a period property in Netherne inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local authority. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local area factors and any connection they have with the property. The value of homes will probably be higher because of them retaining their original character.

Property surveyors can be expected to report if the planned purchase might be is so classified and Section I of a Netherne Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Out of keeping changes to the property may also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser. Dollman & Pritchard are a local firm situated at 8 The Square, Tandridge, Surrey, CR3 6XS should be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01883 347823

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown a property we intend to lease, it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will a Netherne survey advise on the electrical system condition?

When preparing a Homebuyer Report in Netherne a RICS surveyor should report on the overall electrical system if it is clear that they are in a poor condition. This will include a general inspection of the open areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other possible problems relating to things like verifying the state of the visible wiring.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician will usually be part of the survey. Reporting on any documents from the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should be part of the survey in Netherne .

The IEE recommend that a periodic test should be carried out every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered home in Netherne that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just a specific type of render. Commonly it is layered over brick that dries to a very smooth surface. Stucco render is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian and Regency houses. it can be problematic and Netherne Building Surveys sometimes reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems such as dampness trapped beneath paint. Other issues can possibly result be when dampness enters beneath flashings that causes large areas of detachment. Resolving Stucco problems can be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.
