HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Grange Over Sands and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Grange Over Sands, what advice would you give for a 60s residence built from stretcher bond walls? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-built Grange Over Sands residential property feature several advantages over buildings using regular cut stone. Unfortunately, they also experience a range of defects, from crypto-florescence to badly applied render. Such defects will be discussed in the report. One problem often found is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Froggot Adam, 22 Manvers Rd, Beighton, Sheffield, S20 1AY on 0114-269 0756 for a quote for repair work.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Grange Over Sands properties at risk, and does a surveyor investigate possible flood damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m residences are at risk of flood damage, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that action is taken, before flood damage occurs. Flood water can enter a home in Grange Over Sands through several routes, including seepage through walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Grange Over Sands surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report in Grange Over Sands will include an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise the property's value your surveyor will pair awareness of the Grange Over Sands property market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. square metres. Surveyors also reflect on materials used and draw upon key assumptions, for example there being no serious defects.

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

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of communal facilities or service connections, are made in addition to local environmental issues like brine mining activity, also being considered.
