HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Tulse Hill and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Tulse Hill property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Tulse Hill property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Tulse Hill what could a Condition rating 3 mean for 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

In Tulse Hill, examples include loose, missing or deteriorated mortar. They Chimney stacks should be examined from the ground if access to the roof cannot be arranged.

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a house or flat. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Tulse Hill home

being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco house in Tulse Hill.

Stucco is really a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco render is applied to red brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is highly grand in appearance and is was often applied to Regency buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Tulse Hill frequently reveal issues for instance horizontal cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints.

Another example of problems might be when dampness below sills that causes large areas of detachment. Fixing problems with stucco may be costly as renderers are becoming more difficult to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can wet weather have on a Tulse Hill home? Will the chartered surveyor report on this?

Both in Tulse Hill, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on a property are not considered by purchasers. One indication that gutters are a cause for concern is rotten wooden gutters.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy, if not neglected. If poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
