HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Shanklin and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Shanklin property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Shanklin property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Shanklin include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees) and how is it worked out

Shanklin Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation as well as a rebuilding cost as part of the survey. To fully consider an accurate estimate of the value of the building your surveyor will combine knowledge of Shanklin and other considerations about the property for instance: square metres. Surveyors also evaluate construction type and make certain other assumptions like there being no serious defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

It will be assumed that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal problems such as there being no on going disputes. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Additional local Shanklin area assumptions, such as access to a flat or problematic roads and access, are made in addition to local environmental issues like brine mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Shanklin. What suggestions can a Shanklin property surveyor make?

Brick-walled buildings in Shanklin can indicate considerable issues, ranging from horizontal cracking to DPC failure. For instance, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Williamson, 21 Brathay Cr, Barrow-In-Furness, LA14 2BG on 01229 877532 for a quote for repair work.

E.g. Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. Consider renegotiating the price of the Shanklin property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a home with a converted attic in Shanklin. Will access to the roofing be time consuming to arrange?

This often causes anxiety for Shanklin buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. A large number of properties can be blighted by roofing problems. From slates to collar ties, the roof structure as a whole will be taken into account. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a contractor in Shanklin a quote for any suggested work.
