HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Presteigne and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Presteigne property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Presteigne property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on thirties home in Presteigne?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its new title some time ago by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. If you are intending to buy an unconventional Presteigne home such as a period house, it is now the correct home survey. It details thorough and often crucial professional advice on the property's state of repair on top of any important technical details, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts. Permanent external structures or buildings will typically be reported on by the surveyor.

Deteriorated timber

On a Presteigne HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E8' cover?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific home 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. A fairly common example may be split wood sidings. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate Importantly, the possible use of asbestos components will be covered.

Damaged Render

What will the Presteigne Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Presteigne which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a kind of smooth render. Typically stucco render is applied to red brick that sets to a smooth flat finish. The coating is highly beautiful and is found on Victorian and Regency properties for example. it can be problematic and Presteigne Building Surveys sometimes show potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when movement of the wall causes cracking of the surface. Other issues might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-coating problems may be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming more difficult to find.
