HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Gresford property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Gresford property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Gresford Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the argument for conducting the full structural survey if purchasing a extended semi detached property in Gresford rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes called a Full Structural Survey by house buyers, it is now defunct and as it has been replaced by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey. It is now the most appropriate survey if buying an unconventional house like a neglected house in Gresford. The formal report can give in depth and frequently critical insight about the homes construction along with any needs for future maintenance after a thorough inspection.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To ascertain an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will refer to awareness of the Gresford property market as well as other factors about the property for instance: size The valuer will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings, for example curtains. It will be assumed that there is an absence of any problematic legal problems for example there being no on going disputes. Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative during the legal process.

Further area assumptions, such as access to a flat or problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like local industry, also being considered.

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

A neighbour said that the had been a problem with dry rot. What does the Gresford property surveyor check when the building is surveyed?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Gresfordwho have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Houses across Gresford could unfortunately be experiencing damage to the roof, including. Every element should be checked, e.g. concrete tiles. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

The expense of asbestos cement removal, 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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
