HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Park Royal and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Park Royal property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Park Royal property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian home in Park Royal.

Stucco is dense render. Usually it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to a smooth stone like surface. The finish is very aesthetic and is found on Regency properties. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can focus on issues such as damp trapped beneath paint coatings

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when moisture beneath windows which causes detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I spend a bit more on a full structural survey if purchasing a dilapidated Edwardian home near Park Royal as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often described as a Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is no longer offered has actually been given a new title by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a mid century or later unmodified house assembled from normal building materials. When purchasing an unusual property e.g. a poor condition house in Park Royal, the Building Survey is now the best choice to complete. Approximately 3 days after a thorough site survey of any accessible parts, the RICS surveyors report will be sent to the buyer giving in depth and critical details in relation to the construction and uses of the house. There are a few provisos with a property survey because the surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Park Royal house e.g. lifting up fitted carpets.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Park Royal, and will the property surveyor look for possible water damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the Building Survey may advise on urgent repairs.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Building Survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Park Royal property is at risk.
