HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Coven and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Coven property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Coven property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings)

The Homebuyer Report includes an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will factor in area knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. state of repair Your Coven surveyor will also consider materials used and use other assumptions e.g. 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 small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any expensive legal problems like your potential purchase is sold with vacant possession. Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative.

Additional local Coven area assumptions, for example problematic roads and access, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like local Coven industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a sixties house I am interested to buy I think we saw that there were damaged electrical sockets - will the surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

When performing a Coven Home Survey a RICS surveyor will usually remark on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a poor state. The RICS surveyor should also report back on possible problems relating to things like verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters. Looking at any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Coven. Verifying the location of the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advise a Periodic Inspection is carried out every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated Victorian house in Coven that I wish to buy.

Stucco is a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. It is very appealing and is found on Regency homes. It is very similar to plaster. It can contain lime in it as well as animal fibres to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Coven surveyors commonly show potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when it is exposed to driving rain which becomes saturated and thus prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Fixing problems can be dear as the skills are getting rarer.
