HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Oxshott and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Oxshott property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Oxshott property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things I need to verify if buying a period property in Oxshott in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection may have with the home. House prices tends to be greater due to them being in good order. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in disrepair e.g. out of keeping extensions

Property surveyors will report if the planned purchase might be so designated and Section I of a Oxshott Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Unauthorised adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported in the Oxshott survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Substandard guttering

On a Oxshott HomeBuyer Report what are common defects an amber light rating impacting 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

Quite a common example is leaking roof drains. The rainwater goods are inspected by eye. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as defects in the sewer system.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike some more complex survey reports. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will a Oxshott Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian home in Oxshott which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just a type of solid render. Typically it is applied to underlying brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is highly aesthetic and is found on Victorian buildings. it can be problematic and Oxshott surveyors frequently show issues such as when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks

Another example of problems might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Remedying problems can be costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
