What property survey is the correct choice for my planned property purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Westonzoyland and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Westonzoyland property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the Westonzoyland property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Westonzoyland property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Westonzoyland Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To be able to determine the property's value your RICS valuer will relate to in depth understanding of the Westonzoyland market as well as other factors about the property for instance: accommodation Your Westonzoyland surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions e.g. there being no major problems. Surveyors ignore things like sales incentives.

Additional local Westonzoyland area conjectures like services, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, 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.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we need to check out when intending to buy a flat in Westonzoyland in conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Westonzoyland surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local issues and the connection they have with the building and its value. Property Prices are generally higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to conservation areas being in good order.

Surveyors can be expected to note if the house is/might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unapproved developments to the property may also be commented on, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations create problems for Westonzoyland house? Will a Building Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Westonzoyland property. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Small areas of very dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
