HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Niton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Niton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Niton property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco house in Niton which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really dense solid render. Usually stucco render is layered over red brick that sets to an even finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is often found on Victorian homes. it can be problematic and Niton Homebuyer Reports commonly focus on any number of problems such as lateral cracking revealing the mortar joints underneath

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when moisture under flashings which results in detachment. Re-applying problems may be difficult as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would be advised to look out for if buying a period property in Niton inside a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local council.

A Building Surveyors must possess local knowledge of relevant local factors and any effect may have with the building. The price of property will likely be more than prices outside the area which is down to conservation areas being preserved. However a large number have fallen into a poor state e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

RICS surveyors are trained to inform you if the planned purchase is/might be is designated and Section I of the Niton Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Unapproved adjustments to the building should be advised but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall)

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. In order to determine the market value your RICS valuer will relate to awareness of the Niton property market and other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms. Your Niton surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to Niton environmental problems like the property being underneath a flight path, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
