HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Ackworth and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Ackworth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Ackworth property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Chartered Surveyor examine on a stucco rendered regency home in Ackworth that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a sort of flat finish render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is very beautiful and is found on Victorian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Ackworth Building Surveys can discover potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, horizontal hairline cracking that describes the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems could be when moisture below flashings which results in large areas of detachment. Re-coating problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a garage)

A Homebuyer Report on a Ackworth property will include a professional valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as standard. To estimate the property's value the valuer will refer to experience of property in Ackworth and other things relating to the property for instance: square metres. Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions like no significant problems.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there aren't any major legal issues such as the property being sold with vacant possession. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor.

Further area assumptions, such as access to a flat or services, are made in addition to any environmental problems like local mining issues, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Ackworth, what advice would a Ackworth surveyor give for residences built from Fletton brick?

Brick Ackworth converted property will indicate various issues and defects. One problem often found is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Rielly & Webb at 45 Holyoake Rd, Wollaston, Wellingborough, NN29 7RZ on 01933 664739.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks, to the rare, such Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
