Need a Home Survey ? Which one should you opt for?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Stone

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice when purchasing a property built from conventional materials such as brick and tile, not dilapidated and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Stone

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Stone) is also conducted by a RICS surveyor and is more comprehensive. Opt for this when buying a non standard property such as timber frame or older buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Stone

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Stone and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Stone property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations on the Stone property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Stone property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Stone Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey, instead of a Homebuyer Report when considering fifties home in Stone?

Structural Surveys do not technically exist anymore Building Survey has now superseded it. You should choose a Building Survey for the property you are considering. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a post 1950s Stone house of normal construction materials and methods. There are certain limitations are integral with a Building Survey because the surveyor will not be able to force or open up the structure of the property nor can he/she assess the serviceability of energy sources.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a garage) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Stone building will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your surveyor will relate to in depth understanding of the Stone market and other factors about the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also reflect on construction type and make certain other assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. The surveyor also assumes that there are no major legal issues e.g. the property being sold with vacant possession. Such concerns will be unravelled by your conveyancing solicitor during the legal process.

Additional local Stone area assumptions, like service connections, are made in addition to any Stone environmental concerns like the property being underneath a flight path, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

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.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that a leak had been a concern - What advice would the building surveyor in Stone give in their report?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Stonewho have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Houses across Stone could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes. From the clay tiles to the ceiling joists, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Stone, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the house surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as a complete replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
