Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Hucknall

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice when you are buying a property made of conventional building materials such as brick and tile, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Hucknall

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Hucknall) will also be carried out by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor but is more detailed. Choose this for non standard e.g. stone wall buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Hucknall

    This is an independent chartered surveyor valuation of the property. This report is typically chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Hucknall and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Hucknall property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Hucknall property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will my Chartered Surveyor examine on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Hucknall.

Stucco is just a form of solid render. Normally it is applied to brick that sets to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is very appealing and is often found on Victorian and Regency homes. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very similar to plaster. It can have lime in it as well as a grid underneath to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Hucknall surveyors commonly detail potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. trapped moisture leading to internal damp problems

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when the stucco has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Re-covering problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.

House Prices

We are wanting to purchasing an investment property in NG15. The asking price is £155, 266. What things does the Hucknall RICS chartered surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Hucknall ?

There are many factors that can affect house prices such as the state of the roof or the local crime statistics. You can try to benchmark prices values registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £153, 666, which is £1, 600 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The house/flat average was £157, 209. Watnall Lodge, 3, Watnall Road, Hucknall, Nottingham, Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, NG15 6FQ a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £250, 000 .

The most accurate way for you to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Hucknall. What suggestions can a Hucknall surveyor make?

Brick-walled Hucknall flats can show signs of considerable issues, from inadequate damp-proofing to defective mortar. A problem regularly identified is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Cates Robert at 5 Ferneley Cr, Newmarket, CB8 0GW on 01638 662191.

For home purchasers in Hucknall seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
