Which Home Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Ventnor

    A Homebuyer Report should be chosen when planning to buy a property built from standard materials i.e. tile and brick, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Ventnor

    A RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Ventnor) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor and is more exhaustive. Choose this for non standard e.g. stone wall properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Ventnor

    This is an impartial valuation . This is usually chosen by cash purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ventnor and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ventnor 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 recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Ventnor property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a property next to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. domestic refuse disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems like congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Ventnor will consider structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological databases and Isle of Wight Local Authority and advise you .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Ventnor Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Ventnor.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a smooth flat finish. The effect is highly attractive and is was often applied to Victorian properties. it can be problematic and Ventnor Home Buyers Suveys can show issues such as lateral pattern like cracking that describes the mortar lines between the brick. Other issues may be when moisture enters below DPCs that results in the render detaching. Re-covering Stucco problems can be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in the past. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the RICS surveyor check when the property is surveyed?

This is a common concern for Ventnor home buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Homes throughout Ventnor can be hiding serious roofing problems, such as. From sheeting to collar ties, the whole roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Ventnor roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.
