HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Cringleford and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Cringleford property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Cringleford property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a home with York stone walls. What issues must we watch out for?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Hard Blue Limestone to Stoke Hall Sandstone. Defects such as staining affect many stone-walled Cringleford houses. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Cringleford include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation as well as a rebuilding cost as part of the survey. To fully consider the property's value your independent surveyor will factor in knowledge of Cringleford and other considerations about the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and use other assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any expensive legal problems such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g freehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer. during the legal process.

Further Cringleford conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like local Cringleford industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
