HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Corsham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Corsham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Corsham property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Corsham Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings)

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation in addition to a "reinstatement cost". To fully consider an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will factor in depth understanding of the Corsham market and other factors about the property for instance: size Your Corsham surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions e.g. it is connected to mains services. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings.

Additional local area assumptions like issues with access, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like flightpaths, also being considered. A Building survey does not include a

valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What input does a Corsham surveyor give for a 80s residence built from Sussex bond brick? Does brick decay faster in Corsham weather?

Brick-built Corsham conversions feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also suffer from diverse problems, such as weathering. For instance, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and should be taken very seriously. Smith M C should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 113 Poplar Rd, Warmley, Bristol, BS30 5JS or 0117-967 4213.

For example, sailor bond or Flemish bond may be used in the construction of conversions in Corsham. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Corsham Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered regency home in Corsham that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a form of render. Normally it is layered over underlying brick that sets to an even finish. The finish is highly grand in appearance and is found on Georgian homes for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Corsham Building Surveys commonly highlight defects for example, when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks. Other potential problems could result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-covering problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.
