HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Winsford and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Winsford property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Winsford property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Winsford Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall)

A Homebuyer Report on a Winsford property will include a valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To work out the market value your independent surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Winsford market and other things relating to the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions e.g. there are no dangerous materials.

A Building Survey won't 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. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues like the possibility of legal enquiries revealing legal issue that might affect value. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures like the property being insurable, are made in addition to any environmental problems like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I need to on guard for when intending to buy a home in Winsford in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and the bearing may have with the property. The value of homes will be enhanced due to them being unspoilt. However a growing number have been neglected and are in disrepair e.g. out of keeping extensions

Surveyors will tell you whether the location might be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted by your conveyancer. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor consider on a stucco regency home in Winsford.

Stucco is really a form of render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is very aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Regency properties for example. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is similar to any other render. It can contain lime in it as well as plant fibres to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Winsford Homebuyer Reports can report issues such as when it is faced with driving rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues could result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Re-applying problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
