HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in South Woodham Ferrers and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the South Woodham Ferrers property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the South Woodham Ferrers property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a South Woodham Ferrers HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the South Woodham Ferrers house's construction.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the period property I am interested to purchase I think we saw that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in South Woodham Ferrers the surveyor will typically remark on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a less than satisfactory state.

This will include a visual view of the open parts of the wiring on top of areas like checking the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or verifying the condition of a sample of light fittings. .

Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will form part of the survey in South Woodham Ferrers.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed every 10 years (5 if letting).

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor consider on a stucco coated Victorian house in South Woodham Ferrers that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco render is applied to underlying brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is very aesthetic and is/was often found on Victorian and Georgian homes. Specialists say that it is very similar to plaster. it can be problematic and South Woodham Ferrers Homebuyer Reports can focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when it is faced with driving rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems may result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Fixing problems may be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.
