HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Coombe Dingle and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Coombe Dingle property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Coombe Dingle property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Coombe Dingle Surveyor examine on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Coombe Dingle that we intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is a kind of smooth render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is very attractive and is common on some Victorian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors commonly detail issues for instance dampness trapped beneath paint coatings.

Another example of problems might be when water under flashings that causes the render detaching. Re-applying problems can be expensive as craftsmen are becoming more difficult to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? Is this a severe danger, and what subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor look into?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a building and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement will occur in newly constructed buildings, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. Many homes are constructed from a range of materials. These will contract at different rates.

Cracks to a wall or floor are a plain suggestion of subsidence, although they could be easily repaired and of little concern. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Coombe Dingle building will include an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost. To work out the valuation your surveyor will refer to experience of property in Coombe Dingle as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also examine materials used and will draw upon other assumptions such as no significant problems. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further Coombe Dingle assumptions like services, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like local mining issues, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
