HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Spondon and which is cheaper?

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

If the Spondon property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Spondon property's general condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Spondon Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Spondon property will contain a professional valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. In order to determine the valuation your chartered surveyor will pair awareness of the Spondon property market and other factors about the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also examine construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Spondon conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Spondon environmental issues like Spondon planning proposals (e.g flight path), also being considered.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Spondon. Is there any Scottish bond upkeep suggestions we should be aware of??

Spondon conversions with brick walls can indicate several common problems. A serious concern is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Newman Geriant should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 2/Ashleigh Gr/Penydarren Park, Merthyr Tydfil, CF47 8AG or 01685 370106.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface).

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Spondon property, what are common defects an red light rating impacting conservatory and porches?

Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a Spondon residence.

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside should also be reported on. A conservatory's concrete floor that is cracked or spalled, for example, would be reported here.
