HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Edwinstowe and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Edwinstowe property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Edwinstowe property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey, instead of a Homebuyer Report when buying thirties cottage in Edwinstowe?

The Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification some time ago by RICS. If looking into purchasing a modified Edwinstowe house, for example a period house, this is the most suitable property survey. Shortly after a thorough site survey of all accessible areas, a formal written report will be sent to you detailing thorough and far-reaching advice in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the house. There will be certain no go areas with any survey to bear in mind as a RICS surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Edwinstowe building such as removing roof space contents.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation and also a "reinstatement cost" as part of the report. To be able to determine the property's value your chartered surveyor will pair experience of property in Edwinstowe and other considerations relating to the property e.g. general condition The valuer will also consider materials used and will make certain key assumptions like the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

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. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any costly legal issues for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). Advice should be sought from your conveyancer during the legal process.

Additional local area assumptions, for example service connections, are made in addition to environmental problems like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a conversion and the vendor has told us that it has been built with Hopton Wood stone. What issues should we be aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Cap Limestone to Grey Dunhouse Sandstone. Issues including delaminated or cracked paintwork affect many stone-walled Edwinstowe property. 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. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, and may need repointing. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
