HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Stockport and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Stockport property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works on the property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Stockport property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the home I am meaning to move into it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring - will a surveyor advise the electrics?

When performing a Stockport Home Buyers Survey the surveyor will typically mention the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This should include an overview or examination of the open parts of the wiring or fusebox in addition to possible problems relating to things like verifying the nature of electrical fittings in shower rooms. Inspecting any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably

qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Stockport. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician will be part of the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will wet conditions have on a building in Stockport, and does our building survey mention it? If there are problems, will they be inconvenient to fix?

Regular rainfall is common in Stockport and across the country, but the impact wet weather can have on Stockport buildings is rarely paid due attention. One indication that downspouts are blocked is mildew in the attic. Poor drainage can lead to water damage.

Whether buying in Stockport or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair, if identified early.

Damaged Render

What will a RICS Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated home in Stockport.

Stucco is in fact a form of render. Typically stucco is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. It is very attractive and is found on Victorian houses. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Stockport frequently highlight issues for example trapped moisture leading to the surface falling away needing repair. Other potential problems could involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet bricks. Remedying problems can be expensive as renderers are getting more difficult to find.
