HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Canford Cliffs and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Canford Cliffs property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Canford Cliffs property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any benefits to get a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a doer-upper home?

Albeit now often described as Structural Surveys by house buyers they have been reclassified as Building Surveys Opt for a Building Survey for the house referred to. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a 60 year old or less Canford Cliffs property of normal building materials. There are a few limitations exist with a property survey because RICS chartered surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the structure of the building for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Damaged Render

What defects will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Canford Cliffs which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just a form of render. Commonly it is applied to underlying red brick hardens to a smooth flat finish. The effect is very attractive and is common on some Victorian and Georgian houses. it can be prone to defect and Canford Cliffs Home Buyers Suveys commonly discover defects for instance when movement of the wall results in cracks

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-coating problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. To fully consider the valuation your surveyor will take into account local property market knowledge and other factors about the property e.g. square metres. Surveyors also examine style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. it is connected to mains services.

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.

Further area assumptions, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like flightpaths, also being considered.
