HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Whimple and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Whimple property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Whimple property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to investigate drainage? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is usually overlooked by purchasers. If you have visited the house in on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious. This could then result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to remedy. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the home I am planning to move into I saw that there is an unsafe electrical system - will the Whimple surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Whimple the home surveyor will comment on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include a by sight inspection of the accessible sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as potential areas for concern such as checking the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician will be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Whimple .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Whimple.

Stucco is a form of solid render. Normally stucco is applied to brick hardens to form an even finish. Stucco render is highly aesthetic and is found on Regency homes. The composition is similar to plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Whimple Homebuyer Reports commonly report defects such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems might result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Fixing problems with stucco may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.
