HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Low Fell and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Low Fell property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the Low Fell property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Low Fell property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Low Fell surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a professional valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the survey. To estimate an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Low Fell market as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: accommodation Your Low Fell surveyor will also consider construction type and make certain key assumptions e.g. no significant problems.

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. It will be assumed that there is an absence of any costly legal issues for example there being no on going disputes. Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area conjectures, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like local mining issues, also being considered.

Building Surveys on houses

I'm unsure about the reason for having the full structural survey if buying a shabby mid terrace cottage near Low Fell rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often described as a Full Structural Survey by house buyers, this survey is now defunct and as it has been renamed by RICS and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey. If you are buying a modified home, for example a period house in Low Fell, it is now the best survey to choose. A HomeBuyer Report is enough if investigating a post 1950s unmodified Low Fell property assembled from standard building materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. Around 3 days following a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the chartered surveyors report will be sent to you outlining any salient advice on the condition of the house.

There are certain no go areas with the survey insofar as a RICS surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Low Fell house, an example being the removing secured hatches.

Stone block wall damage

Can Slate-built houses in Low Fell be a challenge. What potential issues must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including mould. Issues including mould affect many stone-walled homes. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like repointing mortar with a suitable material.
