HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Frimley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Frimley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Frimley property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

For the Frimley HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

An example defect for this is broken door glazing. The surveyor will confirm that all external doors work where keys are available, but not forced open. Generally, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included.

Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property buyers a clear understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Frimley Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered regency home in Frimley that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact just dense render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is very aesthetic and is often found on Regency homes. Stucco is similar to plaster to work with. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Frimley commonly highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. trapped moisture resulting in the surface falling away which need attention

Another example of problems could be when the render has been taken down to ground level bypassing the DPC. Fixing problems with stucco can be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and will also include a rebuilding cost. To estimate the value of the property the surveyor will call upon experience of property in Frimley and other considerations relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also evaluate construction type and use key assumptions such as there being no serious defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there are no major legal issues e.g. consent for alteration having been given and complied with. Such concerns will be unravelled by your conveyancer.

Further Frimley assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like brine mining activity, also being considered.
