If the Oldland property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the Oldland property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Oldland property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Oldland, and does our house surveyor in Oldland mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact rain can have on Oldland houses is overlooked by purchasers. If you have visited the house in the Summer, issues may have been hidden. This could then result in collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to repair fairly cheaply. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian home in Oldland.

Stucco is in fact a sort of flat finish render. Normally stucco is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco render is very aesthetic and is found on Regency buildings. it can be problematic and Surveyors commonly highlight issues e.g. when there is movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks

Another example of problems may result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems may be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Window frame

On a Oldland HomeBuyer Report, what could a a green light rating mean for windows?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give buyers in Oldland a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition, but maintenance may still be necessary.

An example defect for this is blocked (or missing) drain holes. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.
