HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Turnham Green and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Turnham Green property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Turnham Green property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservatory

In a Turnham Green HomeBuyer Report, what are common a green light rating defects for conservatory and porches?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Red, amber and green ratings give buyers indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but maintenance may still be necessary. An example of this is end support that is inadequate for the beams of a conservatory structure. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will be considered too.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can the surveyor make for buildings built from Diagonal bond walls?

Brick-built Turnham Green properties demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also show signs of distinct issues, such as frost damage. For example, sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat and may require immediate attention. Sowerby should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01661 825145 or 1 The Rise, Ponteland, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE20 9LJ.

Buyers in Turnham Green should consider that a selection of different courses and brick making techniques may be found throughout England and Wales. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a retaining wall)

A Homebuyer Report will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost. In order to determine the value of the property your surveyor will relate to knowledge of Turnham Green and other considerations relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also evaluate materials used and draw upon other assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors will disregard things like sales incentives. The surveyor also assumes that there are no expensive legal problems like no troublesome covenants. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Additional local area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Turnham Green environmental concerns like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not 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.
