Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Beaminster

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be chosen if purchasing a home constructed from conventional materials such as brick and tile, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Beaminster

    A RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Beaminster) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS accredited surveyor and is more comprehensive. Select this when buying a non standard e.g. stone slab roof homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Beaminster

    This is an impartial valuation . This report is chosen by cash buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Beaminster and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Beaminster property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Beaminster property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Beaminster Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Beaminster home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as site clearance) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Beaminster property will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To work out the valuation your surveyor will refer to local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate materials used and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water.

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.

Additional local Beaminster area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental concerns like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Beaminster. What warnings would a surveyor in Beaminster give?

Brick-built Beaminster houses do benefit from many advantages in comparison to other forms of building. Unfortunately, they also show signs of distinct issues. These can include frost damaged pointing or spalling. Any such issues ought to be reported on and suggest potential remedies. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Bansal Building Ltd, 78 Ilford La, Ilford, IG1 2LA on 020 8514 4316 for a quote for repair work.

For example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Beaminster which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is very beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency houses. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water. Stucco is often problematic and Beaminster Homebuyer Reports sometimes detail any number of problems for instance trapped water leading to problems with damp needing repair. Other issues may include attack from salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Fixing problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
