HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Westbury Park and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Westbury Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Westbury Park property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any factors I need to look out for when intending to buy a house in Westbury Park in a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Westbury Park must possess knowledge of local issues and the effect they have on the property and its value. The price of property is, more often than not, inflated which is down to the areas being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are trained to tell you if the house is possibly classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour has suggested subsidence may be a problem. What subsidence-related matters will the Chartered Surveyor examine?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings experience some minor cracking. Many homes in Westbury Park are erected with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

In areas of clay soil, a dry spell will lower the water table. This will dry, contracting the soil around the property as it does so, pulling on the building's structure and which can result in movement. In serious temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes a property valuation and also a cost of reinstatement. To properly appraise the property's value the valuer will combine experience of property in Westbury Park and other things about the property e.g. square metres.

Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and use key assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings. It will also be assumed that there aren't any major legal problems for example no problematic restrictions. Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Further area conjectures like services, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey does not 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.
