HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Thornton and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Thornton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension on the property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Thornton property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a garage) and how is it worked out

Thornton Homebuyer Reports an impartial valuation as well as a Reinstatement Cost as a standard part of the survey. To estimate the property's value the surveyor will factor in experience of property in Thornton and other things about the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also evaluate materials used and use other assumptions, for example there being no major problems.

A Building Survey won't 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. The surveyor also assumes

that there are no impossible to rectify legal issues such as building regulations having been complied. Such concerns will be unravelled by your legal representative.

Additional local Thornton area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Thornton environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick wall upkeep suggestions - can a Thornton property surveyor assist?

Brick-constructed properties demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also be affected by diverse problems. Your house surveyor will cover these in his report, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. A serious concern is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Wilkinson Derek may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01884 243438 or 3 Alexandra Terr, Tiverton, EX16 5JS.

For example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages to opt for the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys do not technically exist anymore and the Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. It is now the most appropriate choice when planning to buy an unusual house like a neglected house in Thornton. A Building Survey spells out thorough and significant insight about the homes construction and uses as well as any needs for future maintenance after a thorough inspection. .
