HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Kings Heath and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Kings Heath property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Kings Heath property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Kings Heath. What input does a property surveyor in Kings Heath give? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built Kings Heath buildings demonstrate several benefits in comparison to other forms of building. Unfortunately, they also suffer from several common problems. Your Kings Heath surveyor will mention these. A problem regularly identified is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Streamline may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 4-6 Corporation Rd, Carlisle, CA3 8XB or 01228 595590.

Brick-constructed property are used in properties built throughout the ages, leading to a good selection of methods and styles. For instance, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a residential property and the seller's agent has made us aware that it has been partially constructed with Wooton stone. What should we look in to?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to properties in Kings Heath, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used around doors and window frames. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report in Kings Heath will include a property valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To ascertain the market value the valuer will take into account local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and use key assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal problems such as access to the property over estate roadways. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Additional local Kings Heath area conjectures, for example services, are made as well as any significant Kings Heath environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, also being considered.
