HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Holborn and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Holborn property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Holborn property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Holborn surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes a property valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as part of the report. To fully consider an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer should use local Holborn market factors and other factors about the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey does not 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 is also on the basis that there aren't any compromising legal issues such as planning permissions being in order. Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative.

Additional local area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or problematic roads and access, are made in addition to environmental concerns like local Holborn industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor look at the safety of the gas appliances?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include the gas pipe route at the property, in addition to gas connected gas fittings in the home such as chimney breasts or flues. The gas fittings however, won't be detached. Gas can be deadly and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Regulations require that all landlords have to carry out appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls cause problems? Which major problems should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

From Westwood Ground Limestone to Portland Hard Blue Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.
