HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hainault and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Hainault property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hainault property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Hainault home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation as well as a Reinstatement Cost included in the cost of the survey. To ascertain an accurate value estimate the surveyor will should use experience of property in Hainault as well as other factors about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also examine materials used and draw upon key assumptions such as it is connected to mains services.

A Building Survey won't 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. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any expensive legal issues for example consent

for alteration having been given and complied with. These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Further area conjectures, such as stairway access to a flat or services, are made in addition to any Hainault environmental problems like flightpaths, also being considered.

Damaged Render

What defects will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered regency house in Hainault which we wish to buy.

Stucco is a sort of flat finish render. Commonly it is layered over red brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. The effect is very attractive and is found on Victorian and Georgian homes for example. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Hainault frequently reveal any number of problems such as horizontal visible cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints

Another example of problems could be when dampness below sills that causes large areas of detachment. Re-applying problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Hainault. Is there any Flemish bond repair advice we should be aware of??

Brick-walled Hainault flats can indicate considerable issues, such as thermal movement. For example, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and may require immediate attention. Contact West Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 01444 242810 or 3 Noel Rise, Burgess Hill, RH15 8BW.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. Consider renegotiating the price of the Hainault property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
