Which Building Survey should you select?

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Mountsorrel) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS qualified surveyor but is more thorough. Select this for non standard e.g. wychert houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Mountsorrel and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Mountsorrel property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Mountsorrel property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Chartered Surveyor be looking for on a stipple rendered (stucco) home in Mountsorrel which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is just a form of render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco is highly grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors frequently focus on any number of problems such as horizontal pattern like cracking revealing the mortar lines between the brick. Other issues could be when water beneath flashings that causes large areas of detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Remedying problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a property next to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. domestic waste material disposal. No one would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health issues such as gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Charnwood Local Authority and advise you .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Mountsorrel surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

Mountsorrel Homebuyer Reports a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To fully consider the market value your RICS valuer will use local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and use key assumptions, for example there being no significant defects.

A Building survey does not 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 is an absence of any compromising legal issues e.g. access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local area conjectures like service connections, are made in addition to Mountsorrel environmental concerns like nearby railway tracks, also being considered.
