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 .

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.

Damaged Render

What will your Street Surveyor look for on a stucco coated Victorian semi detached home in Street.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish solid render. Usually stucco is applied to underlying red brick to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco render is very beautiful and was often applied to Georgian homes. Sometimes it can have lime in it in addition to animal fibres to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Street surveyors commonly show any number of problems e.g. trapped water culminating in the surface breaking needing repair. Other potential problems might involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts absorbed from brickwork. Re-applying problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are getting harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Street and are looking for a house built with brick chimney. What advice would you give?

Brick-constructed residential property in Street feature several advantages compared to other building materials, but they can also experience a number of issues, including inadequate damp-proofing and spalling. Such defects will be discussed in the report. An especially severe issue is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. A local builder should be able to assist.
