HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Vale Of Glamorgan and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Vale Of Glamorgan property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Vale Of Glamorgan property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency detached house in Vale Of Glamorgan that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a smooth and flat render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a very smooth surface. Stucco is highly aesthetic and is often found on Victorian and Regency buildings. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water and hardens to a dense solid. Stucco is often prone to defect and Vale Of Glamorgan Homebuyer Reports frequently reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance trapped water resulting in the surface breaking needing repair.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could involve attack from sulphates sucked out of bricks. Remedying problems can be surprisingly expensive as craftsmen are becoming rarer.
