HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Carlisle and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Carlisle property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Carlisle property's general condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Carlisle include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

Carlisle Homebuyer Reports a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To ascertain the correct valuation the surveyor will should use knowledge of Carlisle as well as other factors about the property e.g. state of repair Your Carlisle surveyor will also consider construction type and will use key assumptions, for example the property isn't on a land fill site. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions, like service connections, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like local Carlisle industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Carlisle. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is often asked by home buyers who know that homes may be exposed to roof maintenance problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters. Factors like amateur repairs are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor be looking for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in Carlisle.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Commonly it is layered over red brick hardens to form an even finish. The coating is highly appealing and is often found on Victorian and Regency buildings. Sometimes it can have lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Carlisle frequently focus on issues for instance trapped moisture resulting in the render failing. Other issues could include attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Re-coating problems with stucco can be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.
