HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Monkseaton and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Monkseaton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Monkseaton property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of site clearance) and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To be able to determine the market value the surveyor will refer to knowledge of Monkseaton as well as other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also reflect on materials used and draw upon other assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building survey won't 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. RICS valuations assume that there are no expensive legal problems e.g. access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local area assumptions, like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like railways, which will also be factored in.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Monkseaton house built in the early 70s, but it has clay foundations. What should we expect a Monkseaton Home Survey to include, and what defects will be reported on?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a home's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Monkseaton, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Damaged Render

What will a RICS Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Monkseaton which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a form of solid render. Usually it is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco render is highly appealing and is was often applied to Victorian buildings. it can be problematic and Monkseaton Home Buyers Suveys can show potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance lateral visible cracking that describes the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other potential problems might be when moisture gets in beneath windows that causes large areas of detachment. Resolving Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are becoming rarer.
