HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Frenchay and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Frenchay property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Frenchay property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Frenchay Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Frenchay property will contain a property valuation in addition to a "reinstatement cost" as part of the report. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will combine area knowledge and other things relating to the property e.g. size Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions such as there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area assumptions, like service connections, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like mining activity, also being considered.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Frenchay, what advice would a Frenchay property surveyor give for residences built from Fletton brick? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed residential property in Frenchay demonstrate several benefits over timber-built homes, but they can also experience a range of defects. For instance, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Nash bricklayers at 3 Charminster Av, Birmingham, B25 8RH on 07806 556101.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
