HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Milton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Milton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Milton property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation as well as a reinstatement cost. To be able to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will combine experience of property in Milton and other things about the property for instance: accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building Survey does not 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.

Additional local Milton area conjectures like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental problems like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the building we are planning to purchase it appeared that there is an old fuse board , will the surveyor report on the electrics?

When conducting a Milton Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor will typically mention the condition of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. A Surveyor should also provide detail on issues like checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Milton. Inspecting the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey in Milton .

The IEE advise that a PIR should be carried out every ten years (5 if letting).

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco home in Milton that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a specific type of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is highly appealing and is often found on Victorian and Regency homes. it can be prone to defect and Milton surveyors frequently reveal defects for instance when movement of the wall leads to cracks that allow for water penetration. Other potential problems could result from the supporting significant loads above such as cracking under the roof joists. Remedying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.
