HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Sheerness and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Sheerness property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the Sheerness property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Sheerness property's condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Sheerness House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor examine the safety of the gas mains supply?

The will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the condition of the meter at the building, as well as gas associated fixtures for example - chimney breasts or flues. However, the Sheerness local surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings and will not carry out any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Of course, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report in Sheerness will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as a standard part of the survey. To properly appraise the correct valuation the surveyor will factor in experience of property in Sheerness and other things relating to the property e.g. general condition Your Sheerness surveyor will also consider construction type and make certain key assumptions like there being no major problems.

A Building Survey does not 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. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no significant legal problems for example consents for works having been granted. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer during the legal process.

Further area assumptions like services, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like the area being prone to flooding, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted that there is a 3mm crack above the windows in the kitchen when we last viewed the property. What subsidence issues does the Chartered Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes may suffer some degree of superficial cracks. New buildings in Sheerness and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water builds up in the soil, which may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Cracks that appear quickly may suggest movement and subsidence. On the inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

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. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
