If the Lyndhurst property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Lyndhurst property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a professional valuation and a cost of reinstatement. To estimate the correct valuation your independent surveyor will pair knowledge of Lyndhurst as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also examine construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions such as it is connected to mains services.

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.

Further area conjectures, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental issues like flightpaths, which will also be factored in.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a property in Lyndhurst and saw a gap below the skirting board in the garage, could this be evidence of subsidence? Is this a serious concern, and what subsidence issues does the Lyndhurst Surveyor report on?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. In some older homes cracks may be visible in the Summer months that close up in the Winter when the materials draw in water, but cracks like these are generally benign.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high sand content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then decomposes, can also destabilise parts of the property's foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. 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.
