HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Acrefair and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

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

If you are planning to make any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Acrefair property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Acrefair property will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will combine experience of property in Acrefair and other factors about the property for instance: accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions e.g. there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors ignore things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area conjectures, for example service connections, are made in addition to local environmental issues like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

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.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a home built Forest of Dean stone. Are there any matters that need to be investigated?

From Peakmoor Sandstone to Red St.Bees Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Acrefair are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Maintenance tips include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a 1985-built flat in Acrefair and found cracks down the gable wall. What subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report consider?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle beneath the structure's own weight. Many homes are constructed from a range of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

In clay soil regions, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This can dry out, shrinking the clay, pulling on the homes foundations and which causes subsidence. In serious temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Oak and elm trees must be located well away from the property, at least 30m. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
