HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Stanley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Stanley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Stanley property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Stanley House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Stanley, what input does a surveyor in Stanley give for residences built with Dutch bond brick?

Brick converted property in Stanley will indicate diverse problems. This could be anything from sulphate expansion to weathering. One problem often found is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Payne Paul Bricklaying Contractors Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 37A Church Rd, Tiptree, Colchester, CO5 0SU or 01621 819300.

A broad range of techniques of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Stanley home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. In order to determine the value of the property your chartered surveyor will take into account local Stanley market factors and other things about the property e.g. desirability of the location. The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions like there are no damaging materials.

A Building survey does not 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.

Additional local area assumptions, for example services, are made in addition to Stanley environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we should check on when purchasing a home in Stanley near a conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are thousands of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Your surveyor need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the effect they have with the property. The price of property is usually greater because of them retaining their original character.

Property surveyors will advise whether the property is/might be is so classified and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out during the conveyancing process.

Unauthorised extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.
