HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Victoria Park and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Victoria Park property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Victoria Park property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice why not obtain a Victoria Park Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What will a Victoria Park Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated house in Victoria Park.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually a kind of smooth render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick to form a smooth flat finish. The finish is very beautiful and is found on Victorian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors frequently report potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Resolving problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will you make for houses built with brick walls? Does brick decay faster in Victoria Park weather?

Victoria Park brick-walled converted property can be affected by numerous defects. These can include weathering or thermal movement. The surveyor would usually include these. One particularly serious issue is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Bricklayer at Springwood Cl, Harefield, Uxbridge, UB9 6EW on 01895 820442.

For example, Scottish bond or Dutch bond may be used in the construction of converted property in Victoria Park, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Victoria Park home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. In order to determine the valuation your surveyor will call upon experience of property in Victoria Park and other things about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and make certain other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area conjectures, such as access to a flat or services, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, also being considered.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
