HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Marylebone and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Marylebone property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Marylebone property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Marylebone, what advice would a property surveyor in Marylebone give for a property with English bond walls? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick Marylebone apartments will show signs of numerous defects, from efflorescence to cracks. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Higgins K, 30 Burridge Rd, Torquay, TQ26LN on 01803 606480 for a quote for repair work.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one, to the rare, such shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can

lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Marylebone include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Marylebone property will contain a surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To estimate an accurate value estimate the valuer will pair knowledge of Marylebone as well as other factors about the property e.g. general condition The valuer will also consider style of architecture and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used.

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. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any costly legal issues e.g. consent for alteration having been given and complied with. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant Marylebone environmental issues like pig farms, also being considered.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco house in Marylebone that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really smooth type of render. Typically stucco render is layered over underlying brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. The effect is very beautiful and is often found on Regency homes. Stucco is often problematic and Marylebone surveyors frequently reveal any number of problems for instance water trapped under paint coatings

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when moisture under windows that results in the render detaching. Re-applying problems with stucco can be difficult as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.
