HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Edenthorpe and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Edenthorpe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Edenthorpe property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor go into detail on the condition or the safety of the gas installations?

A local surveyor will visually check any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the location of the meter for example, in addition to gas connected fixtures such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). Your Edenthorpe qualified surveyor will not remove any fittings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests of any kind on the serviceability of the system. Gas can be dangerous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Edenthorpe home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation as well as a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise the correct valuation the surveyor will take into account awareness of the Edenthorpe property market and other factors about the property for instance: number of bedrooms The surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions such as there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any costly legal issues e.g. consents for works having been granted. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area assumptions, such as use of communal grounds or the property being insurable, are made in addition to any environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will a Property Surveyor examine on a stucco rendered house in Edenthorpe that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly appealing and is found on Victorian and Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can show defects such as horizontal pattern like cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems might be when water beneath sills which causes detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Remedying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as craftsmen are becoming harder to find.
