HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Standish and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Standish property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations on the Standish property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Standish property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and will also include a Reinstatement Cost. To ascertain the market value the surveyor will take into account knowledge of Standish and other things about the property e.g. square metres The surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions, for example it is connected to mains services. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings.

Additional local area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any advantages to order a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when looking into a substantially modified cottage?

Although sometimes referred to as Structural Surveys, they have been superseded by Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a non period unmodified house of normal construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is definitely the correct one to choose for the house mentioned. Following a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building a written report (digital and written copy) will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the buyer specifying thorough and salient details about the standard of construction and repair of the house. Bear in mind that several limitations exist with a property survey as your surveyor cannot (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the house or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Damaged Render

What problems will my RICS Surveyor examine on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in Standish.

Stucco is in fact a sort of flat finish render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. It is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Standish Homebuyer Reports sometimes discover defects for instance lateral cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints

Another example of problems could result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-covering problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
