HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Sturminster Newton and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Sturminster Newton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Sturminster Newton property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Property Surveyor consider on a stucco home in Sturminster Newton which we wish to buy.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is just a specific type of render. Usually stucco is layered over underlying brick to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly attractive and is was often applied to Victorian houses. Specialists say that it is very similar to mortar (sand and cement) in its constituency. Stucco is often prone to defect and Sturminster Newton Homebuyer Reports can highlight issues for instance when stucco is exposed to driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems might result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Re-coating problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 17th Century renovated farmhouse in Sturminster Newton. Will the age of the building be a concern?

Many buyers hope to own a old, characterful home one day. Vernacular architecture, however, can often be problematic. Homes built with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could end up costing more than initially budgeted.If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice. Built between 1324 and 1333, Fiddleford Manor is an example of a traditional solar; manor house in Sturminster Newton.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw a property I am interested to buy, the agent said that there is old wiring. will the surveyor write anything on the electrical system?

When conducting a Homebuyer Report in Sturminster Newton your RICS surveyor will typically comment on the overall electrical system if it looks like they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A Surveyor will also provide detail on issues like verifying the condition of any fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters or the condition miniature circuit breakers.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician will usually be part of the survey in Sturminster Newton.
