HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Stockton Heath and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Stockton Heath property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Stockton Heath property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The English bond walls on this property in Stockton Heath looks in bad shape - what should we do? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Stockton Heath conversions with brick walls can indicate considerable issues. These can include lack of a damp proof course or vertical cracking. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously. Cable P & W G Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01685 879216 or Carreg Yr Erryr/Fforchneol Row, Aberdare, CF44 6HD.

For home purchasers in Stockton Heath seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles

like Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a gatehouse in Stockton Heath. Will the age of the house be a problem?

A property's age can create issues for homeowners, and Structures showcasing traditional methods can be a drain to repair. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs. If you have doubts, speak to your surveyor for more information.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To be able to determine an accurate value estimate the surveyor will pair knowledge of Stockton Heath and other considerations about the property for instance: number of bedrooms The surveyor will also consider construction methods and use other assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors ignore things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Stockton Heath area conjectures, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Stockton Heath environmental concerns like flood plains, 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.
