HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Plymstock property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Plymstock property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will my Chartered Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Plymstock which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually a kind of render. Typically stucco is layered over brick hardens to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is highly grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Regency properties. Specialists say that it is very similar to plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Plymstock Homebuyer Reports can report any number of problems such as when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems could result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Re-applying problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it necessary to upgrade to full structural survey prior to acquiring a shabby, period live work maisonette in Plymstock?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Full Structural Survey following its renaming recently by RICS. Select the Building Survey if you are considering the maisonette referred to. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified maisonette built out of conventional construction materials and methods. There are several limitations exist with a property survey as your local Plymstock surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the maisonette or survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To properly appraise the market value your chartered surveyor will pair knowledge of Plymstock and other considerations relating to the property for instance: size The surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and make certain other assumptions such as there being no serious defects. Surveyors don't value certain things like furnishings, for example curtains. The valuation is also on the basis that there aren't any costly legal issues like no laws are broken by use of property. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures, such as use of parking or service connections, are made in addition to Plymstock environmental concerns like brine mining activity, also being considered. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
