HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Sunningdale property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Sunningdale property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will a Sunningdale Surveyor consider on a stucco coated house in Sunningdale that we intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually just a form of render. Usually it is layered over brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is very beautiful and is found on Regency homes. Stucco is often problematic and Sunningdale Homebuyer Reports sometimes highlight defects e.g. when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks that allow for water penetration. Other potential problems could result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying problems with stucco can be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties create issues for owners? What defects should we be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

Incorrect use of Cement based mortar on a structure build with Hydraulic Lime can often cause problems for property with stone walls. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. Repair advice often includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Conservation area

Are there any things we would be advised to on guard for when buying a converted house in Sunningdale inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local councils. Sunningdale surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local factors and any relation may have with the building. Property values is usually higher due to them being in their original state. However many are falling into a poor state e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

RICS surveyors are expected report if the house could be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic developments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted, however these should be concern for your legal adviser. Campbell Hooper and Co are a local firm situated at Apex House, Windsor and Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL5 0DJ should be happy to advise. Tel: 01344 622141
