HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Thame and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Thame property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension on the Thame property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Thame property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Thame property partially constructed York stone. What should we be particularly aware of?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including deteriorating mortar. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like deteriorating mortar will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Maintenance tips include monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency house in Thame that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact smooth type of render. Normally it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is highly beautiful and is found on Regency buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Thame Home Buyers Suveys can report potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks.

Another example of problems might result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Fixing problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we should on guard for if purchasing a converted flat in Thame near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have with the building and its value. The value of homes will likely be greater because of the areas being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to note whether the location looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unapproved adjustments to the building may also be reported but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.
