HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Rugeley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Rugeley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Rugeley property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Surveyor be focused on, on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian semi detached home in Rugeley that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact just a type of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick that dries to a smooth flat finish. The coating is very attractive and is/was common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings for example. It may contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as animal fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors frequently focus on defects which might include trapped moisture culminating in problems with damp. Other potential problems could include attack from salts sucked out of brickwork. Fixing problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a brown asbestos coating spayed on beams affecting the flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern and are there any risks?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly silicate material. Some types may be in building materials such as cooker insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in stove insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken not to displace asbestos and professional advice must be taken urgently. Rugeley Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. They will report on the risk of asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

House Prices

We are shortly to be purchasing a house near Rugeley (WS15) which is being marketed for £201, 671. What will a local surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Rugeley on a home buyers survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that can add to or subtract from house prices from proximity to road noise to the number and size of bedrooms at the home. You can try to consider the prices of house achieved in the area for comparable properties.

The means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £173, 671, which is £28, 000 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average for houses and flats combined was £165, 532. 1, Oakwood, Rugeley, Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, WS15 2YL a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £175, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get an accurate home valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service.
