HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Romsley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Romsley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Romsley property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Romsley include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out the property's value the surveyor will take into account area knowledge and other things relating to the property e.g. size Surveyors also reflect on materials used and make certain other assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building survey does not 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. The valuation is also on the basis that there are no serious legal problems such as consents for works having been granted. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer.

Further area conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been told that clay soil can cause problems for homes in Romsley. Can the Romsley Property Survey investigate this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a home's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage.

Taking precautions, such as checking that the downpipe drains correctly, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor consider on a stucco coated house in Romsley that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just dense render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. The effect is very grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian and Regency homes. it can be prone to defect and Romsley Homebuyer Reports sometimes show defects such as lateral pattern like cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Remedying Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.
