HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Wolstanton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wolstanton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Wolstanton property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Wolstanton building will include a professional valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To work out the correct valuation the valuer will call upon knowledge of Wolstanton and other considerations relating to the property for instance: state of repair The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and use other assumptions such as there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings. The valuation is also on the basis that there are no compromising legal problems like no laws are broken by intended use of property. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local Wolstanton area conjectures, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like the property being underneath a flight path, which will also be factored in.

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.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the mid 90s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? Does a HomeBuyer Report discuss soil composition the report?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Wolstanton house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Wolstanton, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should wet conditions have on a home in Wolstanton? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Both in Wolstanton, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately wet weather and the effect it can have on your property are not considered by property buyers. Signs that rainwater goods are under performing include spalling masonry. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, this is generally easy to fix if dealt with quickly.
