HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Surrey Quays and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Surrey Quays property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Surrey Quays property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should heavy rainfall have on a home in Surrey Quays? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? If there are problems, will they be costly to fix?

I find it odd that the impact rain can have on homes is not given more thought. Signs that downspouts are under performing include spalling masonry. Blocked rainwater goods can result in hazardous mould.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Surrey Quays Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

Surrey Quays Homebuyer Reports a property valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out the market value your surveyor will factor in awareness of the Surrey Quays property market and other factors relating to the property e.g. size Your Surrey Quays surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will make certain key assumptions e.g. no significant problems. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings.

Further area assumptions, for example service connections, are made in addition to any environmental problems like local mining issues, 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. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Surrey Quays building with a loft conversion, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we do about roof repairs?

Surrey Quays property with no other major issues can be blighted by roof maintenance problems. From ceiling joists to trusses, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as replacing rotten rafters or soffits) 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 builder from the area with accreditation can provide a quote.
