HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Seaburn and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Seaburn property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Seaburn property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Can you please explain the justification in upgrading to a full structural survey when investing in a dilapidated mid terrace house in Seaburn instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes referred to as the Structural Survey, it is no longer available and has been re-titled by RICS and the right name is actually now the RICS Building Survey. This is now the right RICS survey if buying an unconventional house e.g. a period house. It will give comprehensive and significant insight in relation to the houses construction materials along with any defects a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. .

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this residence is located near a stream. Is there a major flood risk? Would our home buyers survey inquire into water damage?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams could all cause major flood damage; sensible owners and home buyers in Seaburn are right to consider precautions. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Seaburn area likely to affect the property also enables the residential surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco coated regency house in Seaburn that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a smooth and flat solid render. Typically stucco render is applied to red brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is highly appealing and is often found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be problematic and Surveyors frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems such as lateral pattern like cracking revealing the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems might be when water enters beneath windows that results in large areas of detachment. Re-coating problems can be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.
