HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Beverley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Beverley property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Beverley property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a house in Beverley, does the chartered surveyor check any flood damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger. In addition, the house survey may recommend maintenance. The house survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Dutch bond brick on this Beverley home is badly worn - what should we do?

Brick-built Beverley conversions feature several advantages over timber-built homes. Unfortunately, they also experience numerous defects. These can include lack of a damp proof course or thermal movement. One particularly serious issue is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Pelham Builders at 4 Pelham Rd, Wallasey, CH44 3AD should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0151-630 3807.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one, to the rare, such sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall.

If the Beverley 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.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Beverley home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost. To fully consider the market value the valuer will use local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Your Beverley surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions like there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any costly legal issues such as there being no outstanding claims. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Further area assumptions like service connections, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
