HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Holbeach and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Holbeach property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations on the property, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Holbeach property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report in Holbeach will include a valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To estimate an accurate value estimate the valuer will take into account local Holbeach market factors and other things relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain other assumptions such as it is connected to mains services. Surveyors will ignore things like sales incentives.

Further Holbeach conjectures like issues with access, are made in addition to environmental problems like flightpaths, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would be advised to be conscious of when intending to buy a period property in Holbeach in the vicinity of Holbeach conservation area ?

Holbeach is in a conservation area and has been classed as at risk by English Heritage, with unknown vulnerability and improving. For detailed information visit their website or contact the conservation area administrator. There are thousands of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local councils. Holbeach is administered by South Holland District Council at Council Offices, Priory Road, Spalding, PE11 2XE. Contact 01775 761161.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of local area factors and any effect may have on the building. Property values is typically inflated as a result of them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors are expected advise whether the property could be in a conservation area and Section I of your Holbeach Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by your legal representation. Unapproved changes that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Holbeach.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco is very beautiful and is often found on Georgian homes. It is almost exactly the same as plaster and mortar. it can be prone to defect and Holbeach Building Surveys frequently highlight issues for instance when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems may result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-coating problems may be difficult as the skills are becoming harder to find.
