HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Carisbrooke and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Carisbrooke property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Carisbrooke property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes a professional valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To ascertain the market value the valuer will use local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: style of architecture The valuer will also consider construction type and will use key assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as gas. Surveyors will ignore things like sales incentives.

Additional local Carisbrooke area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to Carisbrooke environmental issues like railways, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

House Prices

What considerations will a surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Carisbrooke ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect the price of property for instance the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or the amount of light it receives. .

In order for you to get an accurate house valued is to get a Homebuyer Report in Carisbrooke which includes a formal valuation as standard. A qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a home with Hopton Wood stone walls. Are there specific issues to bear in mind?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
