HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Malton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Malton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Malton property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Malton surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Malton property will contain a property valuation and a reinstatement cost. In order to determine the value of the property your chartered surveyor should use area knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. state of repair The valuer will also consider materials used and make certain key assumptions e.g. the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any serious legal problems such as consents for works having been granted. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions like services, are made in addition to environmental problems like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish bond advice - can the surveyor assist?

Brick-constructed houses in Malton do benefit from many advantages in comparison to other forms of building, but they can also experience several common problems, ranging from sulphate expansion to moisture damage. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Hewitt Philip at 176 Sealand Rd, Chester, CH1 4LH should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01244 376952.

For example, common bond or sailor bond are both used in Malton houses. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could heavy rainfall have on our new home in Malton? Where there are problems, what should we do?
