HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Primrose Hill and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Primrose Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Primrose Hill property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered home in Primrose Hill that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco is applied to red brick to form a smooth flat finish. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is was often applied to Regency buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Primrose Hill surveyors sometimes focus on issues such as moisture trapped behind paint coatings. Other potential problems might be when water beneath sills which causes large areas of detachment. Re-coating Stucco problems may be dear as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Primrose Hill home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation and also a Reinstatement Cost as an integral part of the report. To fully consider an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will use area knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. state of repair Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will draw upon other assumptions such as the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

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. The surveyor also assumes that there are no expensive legal problems such as proper access over pathways. Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to Primrose Hill environmental concerns like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we opt for a full structural survey when acquiring a converted Edwardian cottage in Primrose Hill as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally, and incorrectly, described as a Full Structural Survey by many, it is no longer offered and has been given a new moniker by RICS and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey. If intending to buy a modified Primrose Hill property such as a neglected house, it is the most suitable choice of home survey. It should outline in depth and crucial information about the Houses standard of construction and repair on top of any important technical details, shortly after a thorough inspection of any accessible parts. Permanent outbuildings should be checked out.
