HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Goole and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Goole property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Goole property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence information does the Goole Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle under their own weight.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high gravel content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks or flooding. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this house is located near a stream. Is there a major flood risk? Would our home surveyor inquire into signs of water damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Goole property, such as via patio doors.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Goole property enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees) and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include an impartial valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To fully consider the valuation your surveyor will call upon area knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres The valuer will also consider construction methods and will use key assumptions e.g. the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Goole area conjectures like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental problems like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
