HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Winkleigh and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Winkleigh property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Winkleigh property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I need to on guard for if planning to buy an extended house in Winkleigh in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Winkleigh are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect they have with the building. House prices tends to be greater owing to conservation areas being in good order. However many of them are falling into have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Property surveyors are trained to report whether the property could be is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are raised by your conveyancer. Unapproved

changes to the property may also be reported in the Winkleigh survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Property Surveyor consider on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Winkleigh which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really a smooth and flat solid render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is highly attractive and is often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. It is very like plaster. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Winkleigh can reveal defects for example, when it is faced with on-going weathering which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems could result from the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Re-covering problems with stucco may be costly as renderers are getting more difficult to find.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I get a full structural survey prior to acquiring an extended, eighties live work apartment close to Winkleigh?

The Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its renaming in 2010 by RICS. If you are looking into purchasing an altered property like a dilapidated apartment - Building Survey is the most appropriate property survey to go for. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a non prescribed format of report will be sent to the prospective purchaser setting out comprehensive and significant professional advice on the construction materials used on the house.

There will be a few limitations with any survey to consider as a chartered surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Winkleigh apartment e.g. removing secured hatches.
