HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Wroughton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Wroughton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Wroughton property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would be advised to be aware of if planning to buy a house in Wroughton near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local councils.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local considerations and any bearing they have on the building and its value. House prices tends to be inflated as a result of them being largely unspoilt However a large number have fallen into a poor state e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are trained to inform you whether the building is or might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Wroughton Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out during the legal process. Unconsented developments that do not have Local Authority approval should be advised but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Wroughton home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Wroughton property will contain a valuation and a cost of reinstatement. In order to determine the value of the property your surveyor will refer to in depth understanding of the Wroughton market and other considerations about the property e.g. size Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and use other assumptions, for example there being no significant defects. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area assumptions, for example services, are made in addition to environmental concerns like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey won't 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.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Wroughton.

Stucco is a form of render. Commonly it is applied to brick to form an even finish. The coating is very aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Regency homes. it can be problematic and Wroughton Building Surveys commonly report any number of problems such as horizontal visible cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints.

Another example of problems could be when moisture beneath DPCs that causes detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Resolving problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
