HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Barnt Green and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Barnt Green property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Barnt Green property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details get a Barnt Green Home Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include an impartial valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To fully consider the correct valuation your independent surveyor will relate to local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on materials used and use key assumptions such as there are no damaging materials. Surveyors will disregard things like sales incentives.

Further area assumptions, like issues with access, are made as well as any significant Barnt Green environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

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.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Barnt Green and are looking for residences with Flemish bond walls. What warnings would the surveyor give?

Barnt Green brick-walled homes can be subject to numerous defects, such as vertical cracking. An issue of particular concern is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Walker M, 5 Surrenden Park, Brighton, BN1 6XA on 01273 505539 for a quote for repair work.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint.

If the Barnt Green 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.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Barnt Green, what will 'E2' cover?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, with a minimum of technical jargon. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the impact on the property individual defects may have.

Roof coverings are checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. The loss of granules on an asphalt roof is an example of this.
