HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Wells and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Wells property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Wells property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Wells property will contain a valuation as well as a reinstatement cost as a standard part of the survey. To be able to determine the property's value your independent surveyor will call upon area knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and will use other assumptions such as there being no serious defects.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no significant legal problems such as building regulations having been complied. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Additional local Wells area conjectures, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like brine mining activity, also being considered.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a residential property and the vendor has suggested that it has been built with West Cornwall granite. What should we be particularly aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Defects such as salt contamination of affect many stone-walled houses. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. 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, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Maintenance tips include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

House Prices

There is a detached property in BA5 in Wells priced at £241, 824. What will the qualified RICS surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Wells ?

There is a near endless list of things that can add to or subtract from house prices e.g. the existence of double glazing or whether it has any outdoor space. It is useful to compare with prices achieved in Wells at the same time for similar houses.

This means house prices registered between July and October in 2012 was £231, 924, which is £9, 900 less than the amount the vendor is asking for.
