HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Maida Hill and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Maida Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Maida Hill property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Maida Hill Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a cost of reinstatement as an integral part of the report. To estimate an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will relate to local property market knowledge and other things about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions, for example there being no serious defects. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings, for example curtains. It will be assumed that there is an absence of any major legal issues for example no laws are broken by intended use of property. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local area conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or services, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like brine mining activity, which will also be factored in.

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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to consider downspouts? We're concerned about replacement costs.

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet this issue is often overlooked by home buyers. For example, corroded downspouts may indicate that the drainage are blocked, and may lead to hazardous mould. The good news is that this is quite easy to remedy. If not maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a 1973-built property in Maida Hill and saw the driveway surface is broken and uneven. What subsidence information does the Maida Hill home survey include?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures will experience cracking at some stage.

Surface cracks not caused by subsidence can be filled and repainted. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then decomposes, can also destabilise the structure. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
