HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Parson Cross and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Parson Cross property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension on the Parson Cross property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Parson Cross property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Parson Cross Surveyor take into account on a stucco Victorian house in Parson Cross which we wish to buy.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually a kind of solid render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is highly beautiful and is/was was often applied to Regency houses for example. it can be problematic and Parson Cross Building Surveys commonly show any number of problems such as dampness trapped behind paint (assuming painted) which cannot escape leading to worsening damp issues.

Another example of problems could be when water under sills which causes detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I should verify if buying a property in Parson Cross in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by local authorities. Surveyors in Parson Cross must possess sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any effect may have with the property and its value. Property values will probably be inflated because of them being in good order.

Surveyors are expected report if the home could be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Parson Cross Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised by your legal representation. Out of keeping adjustments to the property may be commented on, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of an infestation in the bedroom. What can we do?

Parson Cross purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to an infestation can include traps.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Parson Cross surveyor.
