HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in East Leake and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the East Leake property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the East Leake property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us in the past - What should we be concerned about during the survey work?

Questions like this are often asked of chartered surveyors by purchasers who are aware that property can be blighted by roof maintenance problems. From roof battens to dormer windows, the whole roof must be reviewed, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as repairing a bowing truss) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and a "reinstatement cost". In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will combine awareness of the East Leake property market and other factors about the property e.g. square metres Your East Leake surveyor will also consider construction methods and draw upon key assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as gas. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings.

Additional local area conjectures, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like railways, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Damaged Render

What will my Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated Victorian house in East Leake that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just a kind of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick to form an even finish. The finish is very attractive and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian homes. Stucco is often problematic and East Leake Home Buyers Suveys can highlight issues for example, when it is faced with constant driving rain which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage

Another example of problems may result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Remedying Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.
