Which Home Buyers Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Royton

    A RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Royton) will also be carried out by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor and is more exhaustive. Opt for this for unconventional such as stone slab roof buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Royton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Royton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Royton property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Royton? Could damaged downspouts lower the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which rainfall has on Royton houses is not given more thought. For instance, mildew in the attic strongly suggest that the drainage are at risk. Blocked rainwater goods can result in damage to foundations.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy, if not neglected.However, the damage caused, where left untreated, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the building I am meaning to acquire it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will a Homebuyer Report in Royton advise the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Royton Building Survey your surveyor will make a note on the state of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. A Chartered surveyor should also focus on things like whether there are residual circuit breakers (RCD) or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should be part of the survey in Royton.

The IEE strongly advise that a PIR should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in Royton.

Stucco is actually a form of render. Usually it is applied to brick hardens to a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco render is highly attractive and is/was often found on Victorian and Regency homes. Stucco is similar to plaster or mortar. It can have lime in it as well as plant fibres to stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Royton surveyors commonly highlight issues for example trapped moisture leading to problems with damp.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could include when the stucco is taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Resolving Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.
