Which Property Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Rainhill and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Rainhill property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Rainhill property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To be able to determine the valuation the valuer will call upon knowledge of Rainhill and other things about the property for instance: accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and use other assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Additional local area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to Rainhill environmental issues like flood plains, also being considered.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Rainhill. Can a chartered surveyor inquire into signs of flooding damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams could all cause major flooding damage, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residence in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a property in Rainhill through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property in Rainhill is at risk.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Rainhill. What recommendations will the surveyor make?

Rainhill brick-walled residences can be affected by a number of issues, from moisture damage to sulphate attack. A problem regularly identified is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Tyers & Son Brickwork Ltd of Office 7/The Old Embankment/Station Road, Sharnbrook, Bedford, MK44 1PU on 01234 782333.

For instance, English garden wall bond or common bond may be used in the construction of residences in Rainhill. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
