HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Honiton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Honiton property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Honiton include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a property valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To ascertain the property's value your surveyor will relate to in depth understanding of the Honiton market as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any expensive legal issues e.g. consents for works having been granted. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of communal grounds or connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it necessary to commission a full structural survey prior to buying a poor condition, Victorian live-work flat in Honiton?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as the Building Survey. This is now the best survey to choose when buying an altered property e.g. a flat in poor condition in Honiton. It should outline comprehensive and notable insight concerning the flats condition in conjunction with any maintenance needs after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas. Also flats usually involve shared parts of the building which cannot always be accessed. , and your appointed surveyor can only report on the flat itself although he/she provide an opinion other parts of the property like commonly accessible roof spaces. For more information and a comparison of survey types look at Survey comparison table.

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor take into account on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Honiton which we wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact just a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco is layered over red brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very grand in appearance and was often applied to Victorian houses. It used to contain lime in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Honiton frequently detail any number of problems e.g. trapped moisture resulting in the surface falling away. Other issues may involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Re-coating problems with stucco may be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.
