HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Crewe and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Crewe property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works on the Crewe property, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Crewe property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Crewe House Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can rain have on our new property, and does our Crewe HomeBuyer Report mention it? Can damaged drainage decrease our property's value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather wet weather and the effect it can have on Crewe property are not given enough thought. One indication that drainage systems are damaged is water pooling below gutters. This can lead to hazardous mould.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Crewe include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance)

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a reinstatement cost as standard. In order to determine the value of the property the surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Crewe market and other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location. The surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and use other assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials.

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 surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there is an absence of any costly legal issues like your potential purchase is sold with vacant possession. Such concerns will be unravelled by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish Diagonal bond upkeep guidance - can a Crewe surveyor assist? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed houses in Crewe demonstrate several benefits over stone-built property, but they can also show signs of considerable issues, ranging from spalling to moisture damage. For instance, 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 and should be taken very seriously. S F Bricklaying Services should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 07814 194608 or Broad La, Pelsall, Walsall, WS4 1AD.

For instance, Monk bond or shiner bond are both used in Crewe houses.

If the Crewe 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.
