Looking for a Home Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when planning to buy a home built from conventional materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Templecombe and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Templecombe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Templecombe property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes generate lots of maintenance costs for the owner? Are there any major problems that we should be aware of?

Buyers of a stone-built listed building should consider that any repairs are in keeping with the methods and materials used in the original construction. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses in Templecombe, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be fast replacement of any stones which have become loose. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Stalbridge Quarries Ltd, Inwood House, Henstridge, Templecombe, Somerset, BA8 0PF for details. Call 01963 364200 for more information.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of asbestos wallpaper present in property. What is asbestos, what are the risks and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as ceiling material.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in ceiling boards.

All forms are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos and should inform you of the options.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Templecombe Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will pair experience of property in Templecombe and other considerations about the property for instance: desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions, for example there being no major problems. Surveyors will disregard things like sales incentives. It will also be assumed that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal problems e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Additional local Templecombe area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
