HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Thrapston and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Thrapston property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Thrapston property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of bugs in the bedroom. What can we do?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Thrapston home may not be raised during the conveyancing. Regrettably, vermin can be very expensive to resolve and affect the health of residents. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for pests may include use of insecticides.

If you strongly suspect an issue with moths, or any pest, speak to your chartered surveyor

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as site clearance) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain a property valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as standard. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will pair experience of property in Thrapston and other considerations about the property for instance: number of bedrooms The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and will use key assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area conjectures, for example service connections, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like pig farms, also being considered. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) house in Thrapston that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is highly beautiful and is common on some Georgian buildings for example. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can highlight issues such as horizontal hairline cracking revealing the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems could be when dampness under sills which results in detachment. Fixing Stucco problems can be dear as the skills are getting harder to find.
