HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Basingstoke and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Basingstoke property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Basingstoke property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1890s conversion with stone walls. Which matters should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Ranging from Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone to Rockingstone Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Defects such as erosion of pointing joints affect many stone-walled property. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing mortar with a suitable material.

To find a specific quarried stone, speak to a Basingstoke specialist - Fireplace Basingstoke Ltd, 3 Kings Furlong Centre, Basingstoke, RG21 8YT (Phone: 01256 363305) could help.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Basingstoke building will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To be able to determine the correct valuation your chartered surveyor will combine experience of property in Basingstoke as well as other factors about the property for instance: size Surveyors also examine construction type and use key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been used.

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.

Additional local area assumptions like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like pig farms, also being considered.
