HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Priorslee and which is cheaper?

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

If the Priorslee property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Priorslee property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the justification of carrying out a full structural survey when acquiring a dilapidated detached property near Priorslee rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Although commonly and incorrectly called Structural Surveys - the correct term is actually now Building Surveys.

If you are planning to buy an altered Priorslee property such as a property in poor condition house, this is the best RICS survey. The survey spells out often critical professional advice about the property's construction along with any needs for future maintenance after a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts.

. Out buildings and boundary walls will, in addition, be reported on.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Priorslee Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as an integral part of the report. To be able to determine an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will combine local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Your Priorslee surveyor will also consider style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions like there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors will disregard things like sales incentives.

Additional local area conjectures, such as access to a flat or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like mining activity, 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.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor consider on a stucco Victorian home in Priorslee.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact a smooth and flat render. Commonly it is layered over brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Priorslee can reveal defects for example, horizontal visible cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints. Other issues could be when water enters beneath flashings which results in large areas of detachment. Fixing problems with stucco may be difficult as renderers are getting more difficult to find.
