HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Ottershaw and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Ottershaw property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Ottershaw property's general condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Ottershaw Home Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled house. What problems must we watch out for, and what does the survey cover?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Ottershaw. What should we keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Residences in Ottershaw with no other major issues will suffer roofing woes, like bad drainage. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the concrete tiles to the ceiling joists. The house surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as asbestos cement removal) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Ottershaw contractor. Speak to Avenir Roofing of Serving Ottershaw on 0800 163955 for a quote.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Ottershaw Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

A Homebuyer Report on a Ottershaw property will contain a valuation and also a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To ascertain the value of the property the valuer will call upon knowledge of Ottershaw and other considerations about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine construction methods and will make certain other assumptions e.g. there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings e.g. carpets. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any significant legal issues such as the possibility of legal enquiries revealing legal issue that might affect value. Advice should be sought from your legal representative during the legal process.

Further Ottershaw conjectures like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Ottershaw environmental concerns like mining activity, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't 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.
