Which Home Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Worcestershire

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if you are buying a home constructed from standard building materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Worcestershire) is also conducted by a MRICS or FRICS accredited surveyor and is more comprehensive. Choose this option for non standard e.g. wychert houses.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Worcestershire and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are planning to make significant alterations on the Worcestershire property, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Worcestershire property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a house in Worcestershire on with a local agent. What things does a qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Worcestershire ?

There is a near endless list of things which could positively or negatively affect property values for instance the number of bedrooms or the home having hard to change bad taste parts. .

An impartial way to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default.

The RICS chartered surveyor should go to the property as well as factoring in the multiple area influences affecting values.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls create more problems? What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like deteriorating bedding will vary with the particular type of stone.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 17th Century converted stable in Worcestershire. What effect will the home's cladding have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers have considered buying a house with personality, like a period conversion. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can concern buyers. Worcestershire property showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as suitable timber, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. If you are uncertain, speak to your Worcestershire surveyor for more information. Built in the 14th century, the Barn in Middle Littleton is a fine example of a Medieval-period barn.
