HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Hurst Green and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hurst Green property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the Hurst Green property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Hurst Green property's state of repair as well as information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1860s house with stone walls. What should we look in to?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone to Grinshill Sandstone, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and a cost of reinstatement. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will use local Hurst Green market factors and other considerations about the property e.g. number of bedrooms The surveyor will also consider materials used and will draw upon other assumptions like the ground is not land filled.

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. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal issues such as the property being sold with vacant possession. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer. during the legal process.

Further Hurst Green conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like busy roads, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the property surveyor investigate possible flood damage?

The lives of many property owners in Hurst Green and across the UK have been impacted by floods, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may advise appropriate repairs.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
