Which Home Buyers Survey should you select?

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Wheatley and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Wheatley property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Wheatley property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £402, 146 in the right ball park amount to buy a detached house close to OX33 for and what considerations will a Wheatley surveyor consider on a valuation ?

A myriad of factors exist which could have a bearing on house prices, for example anti social neighbours or the status of the central heating. It may help to put side by side the prices of house achieved in the area for similar properties.

The means house prices completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £418, 946, which is £16, 800 more than the selling price (£393, 790 was the blended house/flat average). Pond Farm, The Dairy, Holton, Oxford, South Oxfordshire, Oxfordshire, OX33 1PY a detached home sold for £200, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Wheatley surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost included in the cost of the survey. To be able to determine the property's value your surveyor will call upon local property market knowledge and other things relating to the property e.g. square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will make certain key assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

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.

Further area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Wheatley environmental problems like railways, also being considered.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a apartment in Wheatley and saw evidence of cracks down the gable wall, could this be evidence of subsidence? Is this a severe concern, and what subsidence issues does the Wheatley Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Heave is less common, and can be caused when a tree dies or is uprooted and its roots cease absorbing moisture from the ground.

Cracks to a stairwell window are a plain suggestion of subsidence, though they could be nothing to worry about. In extreme weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning is a lengthy process used to stabilise the foundations of a property, and is required in around a quarter of subsidence matters. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.
