HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Pentonville and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Pentonville property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications on the Pentonville property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Pentonville property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Pentonville Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Pentonville building will include a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. When calculating the market value your independent surveyor will take into account local property market knowledge as well as other factors about the property for instance: number of bedrooms. Surveyors also examine materials used and draw upon key assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors disregard things like sales incentives. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there aren't any serious legal problems like there being no on going disputes. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to environmental issues like flood plains, which

will also be factored in. 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.

Stone block wall damage

Can property in Pentonville built with stone generate high upkeep costs for the owner? Are there specific potential issues to consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Broadway Dark Cream Limestone to Naylor Hill Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects affecting stone-built Pentonville homes can vary, cracks being relatively common. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. Purchasers renovating Pentonville homes should be aware that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. To source stone quarried in Pentonville, you can contact local suppliers.

Damaged Render

What will your Pentonville Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered regency house in Pentonville which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a smooth and flat render. Normally stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The coating is very beautiful and is was often applied to Regency buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can detail any number of problems for example, moisture trapped beneath paint coatings.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when moisture below flashings which causes the render detaching requiring raking back and reapplying. Fixing problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as craftsmen are getting harder to find.
