HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Silverdale and which is cheaper?

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

If the Silverdale property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Silverdale property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor be looking for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Silverdale.

Stucco is just a form of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is highly beautiful and is/was common on some Victorian and Georgian houses. it can be problematic and Silverdale surveyors can report potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when settlement of the wall causes cracks

Another example of problems could result from the heavy loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Resolving Stucco problems may be expensive as renderers are getting rarer.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a home in Silverdale with Ham Hill stone walls. What problems must we watch out for, and what does the survey cover?

Buyers of listed property should consider that appropriate maintenance methods and goods are used. These restrictions are often rigorously enforced. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

House Prices

We are would like to buying a property in Silverdale. What different issues will your qualified RICS surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Silverdale on a home buyers survey ?

There are many factors which could affect property values for example the total square meterage of the home or whether the property is on an adopted road. .

The only way to get an accurate house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. A qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A chartered surveyor should visit the home in addition to considering the wealth of influences affecting property values.
