HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Street and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Street property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Street property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can West Cornwall granite-built houses be a challenge. Are there any major factors that we should be aware of?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion of pointing joints. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as repointing mortar with a suitable material. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Avalon Farm Quarry, Avalon Farm, Sharpham Lane, Street, Somerset, BA16 9SE for details. Call 01458 442688 for more information.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Street surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what will it include?

Street Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To ascertain an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will call upon knowledge of Street and other factors about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate construction type and make certain other assumptions, for example there are no dangerous materials.

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

Additional local Street area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to Street environmental concerns like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in Street - What advice would the building surveyor give in their report?

This often causes anxiety for house purchasers who know how costly roofing work can be. Houses across Street could feature issues with the roof like. From wind braces to sheeting, every part of the roof will be taken into account. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
