HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Kirk Ella and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Kirk Ella property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kirk Ella property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Kirk Ella House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a house built in the late 80s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to cause problems? Does a Building Survey discuss soil composition the report? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Factors from dry rot to snow can cause major repair bills for a house-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a number of issues. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like swift repair of any collapsed drains. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Kirk Ella include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall)

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation and a cost of reinstatement. To work out the correct valuation your RICS valuer will pair local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: square metres The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will use other assumptions such as no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings e.g. carpets. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any costly legal issues for example no troublesome covenants. Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area conjectures, like service connections, are made as well as any significant Kirk Ella environmental problems like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would need to verify if purchasing a property in Kirk Ella near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to possess local knowledge of local area factors and the connection may have with the property and its value. Property Prices are typically more than prices outside the area owing to conservation areas resisting change. However many areas have fallen into a poor state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

RICS surveyors are trained to note if the property looks like it may be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Kirk Ella Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic extensions to the building will also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
