HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Aldershot and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Aldershot property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Aldershot property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Aldershot Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a cost of reinstatement as part of the survey. To estimate the valuation your surveyor will relate to local Aldershot market factors and other considerations about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Your Aldershot surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain key assumptions like there being no serious defects.

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 also assumes that there are no serious legal issues such as no troublesome covenants. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Aldershot conjectures, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental issues like brine mining activity, also being considered.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the thirties house we want to purchase, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses, does a the surveyor go into detail on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Aldershot the RICS surveyor will usually comment on the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous condition. This will include an overview inspection (without removing any fittings) of exposed sections of the wiring in addition to areas e.g. confirming the category of electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the property will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest a PIR be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out).

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Fletton brick on this Aldershot property has deteriorated - what should we do? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-walled Aldershot conversions can suffer from considerable issues. This could be anything from horizontal cracking to efflorescence. A problem regularly identified is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Nick Heap Brickwork Services Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 07966 521513 or Sanserra House/Mayfield Rd, Bournemouth, BH9 1TF.

For example, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
