HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Withernsea and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Withernsea property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Withernsea property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does heavy rain have on our new building? Are repairs going to be expensive?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that this issue is often overlooked by house purchasers. As an example, "gushing" gutters indicate that the rainwater goods are a cause for concern. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

The good news is that these defects are usually easy to repair, unless they are not maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Withernsea.

Stucco is in fact a form of render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco render is very aesthetic and is common on some Victorian buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Withernsea frequently show potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when there is movement of the underlying wall can lead to cracks. Other issues might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-covering problems may be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes a professional valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. In order to determine the value of the property your independent surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Withernsea market and other things relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. The valuer will also consider construction methods and draw upon other assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any problematic legal problems like the tenure being as indicated (e.g freehold). Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, such as stairway access to a maisonette or services, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like the property being underneath a flight path, 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 small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
