HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Middlewich and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Middlewich property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Middlewich property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) detached house in Middlewich that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco is applied to underlying brick to form an even finish. It is very beautiful and is found on Regency homes. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water. it can be problematic and Middlewich surveyors frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems such as trapped water leading to the surface breaking needing repair. Other potential problems may include attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Remedying problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Middlewich building will include an independent valuation as well as a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To estimate the property's value your RICS valuer will take into account in depth understanding of the Middlewich market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also evaluate construction type and draw upon other assumptions like it is connected to mains services.

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

Additional local area assumptions like services, are made in addition to any environmental issues like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a residential property with Kentish Rag stone walls. Which factors should we consider?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include deteriorating mortar. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses in Middlewich, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be.
