HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Wythall and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Wythall property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Wythall property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would need to be wary of if intending to buy a property in Wythall in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local council.

A Building Surveyors need to possess knowledge of relevant local factors and any connection they have with the home. The value of homes is usually higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them retaining original features. However a large number are falling into disrepair for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors will inform you whether the property is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of a Wythall Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping modifications to the property may be advised but these are really more a investigated by your legal adviser.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a flat in Wythall and noticed cracks down the gable wall, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence information does the Wythall Building Survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement does happen in new homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, but this should settle after a short while.

Cracks that appear quickly may be a strong indication of subsidence. In extreme temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK. The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

House Prices

There is a house in the centre of B47 - Wythall on for £279, 632. What will a qualified RICS surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Wythall ?

There are many factors that might affect property values for instance the square footage or the location and proximity of nearby schools. It may help to look at house values achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £271, 832, which is £7, 800 less than the asking price (£261, 811 was the blended house/flat average). 17, Morrey Close, Wythall, Birmingham, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B47 6AQ a detached house sold for £359, 995 .

An impartial way for you to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as a core component. Your RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).
