HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Sutton on Trent and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Sutton on Trent property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Sutton on Trent property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Sutton on Trent home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

Sutton on Trent Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To ascertain the market value the surveyor will pair knowledge of Sutton on Trent and other considerations about the property e.g. square metres Your Sutton on Trent surveyor will also consider materials used and make certain key assumptions e.g. there being no major problems.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any significant legal problems for example no troublesome covenants. These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Additional local area conjectures, for example services, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, which will also be factored in.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Sutton on Trent, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What advice would the Sutton on Trent property surveyor give in their report?

Questions like this are often asked of Sutton on Trent surveyors by home buyers who are aware that property can be hiding serious roofing woes, like bowing beams. From the sheeting to the valley gutters, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Sutton on Trent, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a contractor in Sutton on Trent can provide one.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1810s home with stone walls. Are there any related issues that need to be investigated?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include delamination. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Len Kirk Plant Hire Ltd, Paving Way, Whisby Road, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN6 3QW, quarrying Limestone, for details. Call 01522 681329 for more information.
