HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Ewloe and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Ewloe property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Ewloe property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Ewloe Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Ewloe include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

Ewloe Homebuyer Reports a property valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To be able to determine the valuation your RICS valuer will take into account awareness of the Ewloe property market and other things relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will use key assumptions e.g. there being no major problems. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Ewloe area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

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.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Ewloe with stone walls create issues? Which major problems should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Hopton Wood Limestone to Orton Scar Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This often needs repointing. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Gas flame

Will a Ewloe surveyor report on the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include the condition of the meter at the building, as well as gas related appliances, for instance flue/chimney maintenance. A Ewloe RICS surveyor won't remove fittings nor will they conduct any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Of course, gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
