HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Wealdstone and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Wealdstone property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Wealdstone property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a house in Wealdstone. What can we do?

Property purchasers in Wealdstone should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to vermin can include destruction of tainted materials. If you strongly suspect an issue with mice, or any pest, speak to your RICS surveyor

Damaged Render

What will the Wealdstone Surveyor examine on a stucco rendered home in Wealdstone.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Typically stucco render is applied to underlying red brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco is highly grand in appearance and is found on Regency homes. it can be problematic and Surveyors sometimes detail defects such as when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the supporting significant loads above such as cracking under the roof joists. Remedying problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I should be wary of if buying an extended house in Wealdstone inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local authorities. Your surveyor need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and the relation may have on the home and its value. House prices will likely be more than prices outside the area because of them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to advise whether the location is or might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Wealdstone Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out during the legal process. Out of keeping changes to the property will also be advised but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.
