HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Sherston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Sherston property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Sherston property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the survey. To fully consider the property's value your RICS valuer will pair awareness of the Sherston property market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms Your Sherston surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain other assumptions, for example the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Sherston conjectures, like issues with access, are made in addition to Sherston environmental issues like industrial buildings, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Sherston.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just a type of render. Usually it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly appealing and is found on Victorian buildings. it can be problematic and Sherston surveyors sometimes show potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, horizontal visible cracking revealing the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems could be when moisture under DPCs that results in large areas of detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Resolving problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw a sixties house I am interested to buy I saw that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does a surveyor advise on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Sherston the home surveyor should usually add detail on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. A Surveyor will also give detail on possible problems relating to things like the main electricity supply. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.
