HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Cotgrave and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Cotgrave property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Cotgrave property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Cotgrave House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor check out the condition of the gas heaters?

The RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually check the accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the gas pipe route for example, as well as gas associated fittings for example - the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Your Cotgrave chartered surveyor won't remove any external fittings or housings nor will they run any tests on the appliances or system. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations or if you smell gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as standard. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will pair local Cotgrave market factors as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on materials used and will use key assumptions e.g. there being no serious defects. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Cotgrave area conjectures, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or issues with access, are made in addition to any environmental issues like brine mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered Victorian semi detached home in Cotgrave that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just a form of render. Usually it is applied to brick hardens to form an even finish. It is highly attractive and is common on some Georgian properties. It can contain lime in it as well as plant fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Cotgrave surveyors sometimes focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for example trapped moisture resulting in damp problems which need attention.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might include sulphate attack from sulphates absorbed from bricks. Remedying problems may be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
