HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Pulborough and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Pulborough property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Pulborough property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco regency house in Pulborough which we wish to buy.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is dense render. Typically stucco render is layered over red brick hardens to a smooth and even finish. The coating is highly appealing and is found on Victorian and Regency houses. Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as animal fibres to stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Pulborough Home Buyers Suveys can show any number of problems like trapped water leading to problems with damp. Other potential problems may include

sulphate attack from sulphates derived from wet bricks. Remedying Stucco problems can be costly as craftsmen are getting rarer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Pulborough? Will the Pulborough chartered surveyor report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Despite England's reputation for wet weather rainfall and the effect it can have on properties are usually overlooked. One indication that drainage are blocked is water pooling below gutters. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix if dealt with quickly.However, the damage caused, where not cared for, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor go into detail on the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

A local surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas (and oil heaters) at the building, as well as gas related fixtures e.g. ventilation of flue (if blocked). Any gas fittings will not however be removed. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.
