HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Victoria and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Victoria property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension on the Victoria property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Victoria property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we check gutters? Will the Victoria chartered surveyor report on this? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact heavy rain can have on property is rarely paid due attention. For instance, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts will likely suggest that the downspouts are damaged. Luckily, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to resolve. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a property. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Victoria home buyers should know that is not a requirement that the vendor to mention a pest issue. Regrettably, vermin can be costly to fix and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies to vermin can include professional cleaning or removal or excision of affected timber. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco coated regency house in Victoria which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just a type of render. Commonly it is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very appealing and is found on Regency homes for example. Stucco is often problematic and Victoria Homebuyer Reports sometimes focus on defects such as water trapped behind paint (assuming painted) which cannot escape. Other issues might be when moisture below DPCs that causes detachment. Re-coating problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
