HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Bedminster and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Bedminster property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Bedminster property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Bedminster Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Bedminster include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and what will it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To estimate the valuation your independent surveyor will refer to local Bedminster market factors and other considerations about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your Bedminster surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like sales incentives.

Further Bedminster conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to any environmental problems like local Bedminster industrial considerations, also being considered. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need English Garden Wall bond maintenance advice, can a property surveyor in Bedminster help? What impact do Bedminster environmental conditions have?

Bedminster residences with brick walls can be affected by a number of issues, ranging from thermal movement to efflorescence. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Contact Corkett P M for a repairs estimate at 01278 422930 or Roene/Horsey La, Bridgwater, TA7 8QJ.

Bedminster home purchasers may need to consider that a selection of different courses and brick making techniques can be found across Bedminster, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this home is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our property surveyor search for possible flood damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Flooding in Bedminster can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residence, such as via incorrectly fitted window frames. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the residence or on adjacent sites. The RICS surveyor will usually recommend that the property buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
