HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Ardleigh Green and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ardleigh Green property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer comprehensive details of the Ardleigh Green property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can structures built with stone cause issues for buyers? Which major matters should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Purchasers in Ardleigh Green should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Ardleigh Green will include an independent valuation and a cost of reinstatement. In order to determine the property's value your RICS valuer will relate to local property market knowledge and other things relating to the property for instance: square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use other assumptions such as there being no serious defects. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further Ardleigh Green conjectures, such as stairway access to a flat or connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental concerns like brine mining activity, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Other external areas of the property

For the Ardleigh Green HomeBuyer Report what are the usual Condition Rating 1 defects affecting 'E9 - Other' ?

This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Stair tread widths which are dangerously short is an example. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition, but regular upkeep may still be required. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.
