HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Dunholme and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Dunholme property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the Dunholme property, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Dunholme property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1810s Dunholme house with stone walls. Are there any defects that need to be investigated?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Red St.Bees Sandstone to Swaledale Fossil Limestone. Issues including mould affect many stone-walled homes in Dunholme.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

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 Dunholme include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Dunholme property will include a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To ascertain an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will pair area knowledge and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions such as there are no damaging materials.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Further area assumptions, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or problematic roads and access, are made in addition to Dunholme environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

House Prices

I am going to purchase a detached property in LN3, being marketed for £131, 920. What things does a surveyor take into account in the process of a home buyers survey ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on the price of property from the legality of extensions to whether the property is listed. It may help to compare with prices achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £115, 320, which is £16, 600 less than the price you are intending to pay. 6, Norman Way, Bardney, Lincoln, West Lindsey, Lincolnshire, LN3 5BT a detached property was purchased for £125, 000 .

The only way to get an independent house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part.
