HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Stallingborough and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Stallingborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give comprehensive details of the Stallingborough property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Stallingborough building will include a professional valuation and a rebuilding cost. In order to determine the property's value your surveyor will relate to knowledge of Stallingborough and other things relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and make certain other assumptions like no significant problems.

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

Additional local Stallingborough area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like local mining issues, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have been told that Stallingborough properties built on clay soil can experience problems. Does the Stallingborough House Survey cover this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a home's foundations can create difficulties. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as separation of the skirting board from the floor. There is a real benefit in booking a Stallingborough surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Sussex bond upkeep guidance for the Victorian house we are buying? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed property in Stallingborough feature several advantages, but they can also indicate various issues and defects, such as frost damaged pointing. For example, sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat and may require immediate attention.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one, to the rare, such English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds.
