HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Usk and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Usk property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Usk property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Usk House Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a stucco Victorian home in Usk.

Stucco is in fact just a type of render. Normally it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a smooth flat finish. The effect is very appealing and is often found on Victorian and Regency buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can report issues for example, horizontal visible cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints

Another example of problems may be when dampness below flashings which results in large areas of detachment. Fixing problems with stucco can be expensive as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.

House Prices

There is a detached house in NP15 - Usk on with a local agent for £370, 943. What considerations will a Usk surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Usk on a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values e.g. the amount of ground rent payable or issues with drainage. It is useful to weigh up prices against prices recorded in Usk for comparable properties.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £348, 643, which is £22, 300 less than £370, 943 - the amount you buying for. The house/flat average was £296, 787. 3, Castle Mews, Usk, Monmouthshire, Monmouthshire, NP15 1QW a detached property was purchased for £120, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. Your chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and what does it include?

Usk Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your chartered surveyor will relate to knowledge of Usk as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. state of repair.

The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions, for example there being no major problems. Surveyors will disregard certain things like sales incentives.

Additional local area conjectures, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
