HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Fitzrovia and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Fitzrovia property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Fitzrovia property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Fitzrovia property will contain a valuation as well as a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will call upon experience of property in Fitzrovia and other things relating to the property for instance: state of repair. Your Fitzrovia surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon other assumptions like there are no damaging materials. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings.

Additional local Fitzrovia area assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation. A Building

survey does not 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.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Fitzrovia , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our property surveyor in Fitzrovia pay attention to during the survey?

Fitzrovia properties in good condition can be blighted by roofing woes. Any part of the roof or loft, such as tie beams, ought to be checked. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

The expense of repairing a bowing truss, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Fitzrovia roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The handmade bricks on this Tudor property is badly worn - what should we do?

Brick-walled Fitzrovia homes can be affected by diverse problems. These can include crypto-florescence or badly applied render. For instance, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and should be taken very seriously. For more information, contact a local builder, Quayline Ltd of 12 Southfield Ave, Paignton, TQ31LJ on 01803 558656.

A selection of different courses and brick making techniques of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. Consider renegotiating the price of the Fitzrovia property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
