RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

A Homebuyer Report on a Bardsley property will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement cost. To be able to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will take into account area knowledge and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also evaluate materials used and will draw upon key assumptions like no significant problems. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions like the property being insurable, are made in addition to Bardsley environmental problems like local mining issues, also being considered.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1810s Bardsley house with stone walls. What should we look in to, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

There are numerous of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
