Which Home Survey is the right choice for my intended home purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Newbury Park

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when planning to purchase a property built from standard building materials such as tile & brick, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Newbury Park

    A RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Newbury Park) will also be carried out by a RICS chartered surveyor and is more comprehensive. Choose this when buying a non standard , for example box frame construction properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Newbury Park

    This is an independent valuation . It is often chosen by cash buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Newbury Park and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Newbury Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Newbury Park property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated home in Newbury Park that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a smooth and flat render. Normally stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly appealing and is often found on Georgian homes. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very like any other render. it can be problematic and Surveyors commonly highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues could result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Fixing problems can be difficult

and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a property near to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. inert waste material disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include heavy metals .

Building Surveys and valuations in Newbury Park will consider any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Redbridge Local Authority and advise you .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the mid-century home we are meaning to purchase, it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board ; does Newbury Park Homebuyer Report advise on the electrical system condition?

When performing a Building Survey in Newbury Park your RICS surveyor will comment on the electrical system if it looks like they are in a less than satisfactory state.

This should include a visual inspection of the accessible sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of areas e.g. confirming the category of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or checking the condition of a sample of switch gear. Inspecting the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Newbury Park.

The IEE strongly advise that a periodic test need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).
