HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Oxton and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Oxton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Oxton property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Property Surveyor be looking for on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Oxton which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a smooth and flat render. Typically it is layered over brick to form a smooth stone like surface. It is very attractive and is/was found on Victorian buildings. It is very similar to plaster in its constituency. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Oxton Home Buyers

Suveys commonly focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for example trapped water leading to the render failing. Other potential problems may include when the render is taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course. Re-coating problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it necessary to spend a bit more on full structural survey before buying a derelict sixties house in Oxton?

Structural surveys have a new name and are now entitled Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a 60 year old or less Oxton home assembled from conventional construction materials i.e. brick/tile. We would suggest that you go for a Building Survey for the house you are considering. Be aware that some caveats are integral with a Building Survey because your local Oxton surveyor is not authorised (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the property of look into the internal condition of chimneys.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Oxton, and think we saw signs of pests in the study - What should we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This issue should be taken seriously. Evidence may not be easy to find. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.
