HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Keelby and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Keelby property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Keelby property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would need to be wary of when buying a flat in Keelby in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Keelby must possess relevant knowledge of local issues and any bearing may have on the building and its value. Prices will be higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to report if the home is/might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Keelby Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are raised by your solicitor. Unconsented developments to the property should be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What consequence does clay soil have on a house's foundations? What should we expect a Keelby House Survey to include? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Keelby house. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Signs like sticking window frames or cracks along the kitchen wall can be early indications of very serious structural issues.

Taking precautions, such as ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Keelby home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation in addition to a "reinstatement cost" included in the cost of the survey. To fully consider the value of the property your independent surveyor will pair knowledge of Keelby and other things relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Your Keelby surveyor will also consider construction type and will draw upon key assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors ignore certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. It will also be assumed that there are no problematic legal problems like no troublesome covenants. Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative.

Additional local area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like local Keelby industrial considerations, also being considered.

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