HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Worcester and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Worcester property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Worcester property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor examine on a stucco semi detached home in Worcester that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just a type of solid render. Normally it is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth and attractive finish. The coating is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. It used to contain lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Worcester Building Surveys commonly discover any number of problems such as trapped moisture resulting in problems with damp.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might include attack from sulphates or salts absorbed from bricks. Resolving problems may be difficult and costly as renderers are becoming rarer.

For a local stucco advice contact J T Hall, 5 Station Road, Worcester, WR3 7UD Tel. 01905 674354 or 07907 271610

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Worcester, what recommendations will a Worcester surveyor make for a house built with English bond walls? What impact do Worcester environmental conditions have?

Worcester converted property with brick walls can indicate a number of issues, from lack of a damp proof course to sulphate expansion. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Smith Nigel should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 25 Graig Ebbw, Rassau, Ebbw Vale, NP23 5SE or 07947 330491.

E.g. Scottish bond or Dutch bond may be used in the construction of converted property in Worcester. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the building we are planning to purchase, the agent said that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; will a Homebuyer Report in Worcester advise the general state of the electrical system?

During a Homebuyer Report in Worcester a qualified surveyor will report on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in a dangerous state.

This will include a visual inspection of the accessible sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to possible problems relating to things like checking the category of electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a PIR should be carried out every ten years (5 if renting out).
