HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Hither Green property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Hither Green property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Hither Green property will contain a valuation and will also include a Reinstatement Cost. To properly appraise an accurate value estimate the valuer will factor in knowledge of Hither Green and other considerations relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and will use other assumptions like the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there aren't any expensive legal problems

e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g freehold). Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer.

Further area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to any Hither Green environmental concerns like busy roads, also being considered.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Hither Green may be worth checking. What possible solutions are to available to fix this?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Many homes are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Subsidence is not always easy to identify, as most of the tell-tale signs could comfortably be caused by other factors. Inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will your Hither Green Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered home in Hither Green which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a kind of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is very attractive and is common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Hither Green Building Surveys sometimes highlight issues e.g. dampness trapped under paint coatings. Other issues might be when water below flashings that causes the render detaching. Resolving problems with stucco can be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.
