HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Stapleford and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Stapleford property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Stapleford property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any factors we should on guard for when intending to buy a house in Stapleford in conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Your surveyor need to possess relevant knowledge of local issues and the bearing they have on the property. Property values tends to be higher which is down to the areas resisting change.

RICS surveyors are expected tell you if the planned purchase might be is so classified and Section I of a Stapleford Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted by your solicitor. Out of keeping adjustments to the building may be advised but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Stapleford which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really dense render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick hardens to an even finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Regency properties. it can be prone to defect and Stapleford surveyors can reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-applying problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the thirties house I am meaning to purchase it looked like there is old wiring - will a Stapleford survey advise on the electrical system?

When conducting a Stapleford Homebuyer Report your RICS surveyor will make a note on the state of the electrics if it is clear that they are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. A Chartered surveyor is trained to focus on concerns such as inspecting the state of repair of the fitted appliances such as water heaters or verifying the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any documentation from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advise a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
