Home Buyers Survey in Boldon

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Boldon and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Boldon property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Boldon property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will your RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco house in Boldon that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a specific type of solid render. Usually stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. Stucco is very grand in appearance and is/was common on some Victorian homes for example. It is similar to plaster and mortar. It may have lime in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Boldon surveyors can detail defects for instance trapped moisture culminating in damp problems. Other issues might be when the stucco has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC. Re-covering problems with stucco can be dear as renderers are becoming more difficult to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Boldon Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and also a "reinstatement cost" as an integral part of the report. To be able to determine the market value the valuer will refer to awareness of the Boldon property market and other things relating to the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and will draw upon key assumptions such as no contamination in or from ground.

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.

Additional local Boldon area conjectures, like services, are made in addition to any environmental problems like nearby pubs, also being considered.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in the past, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we look into during the survey?

Houses in Boldon with no other major issues may be exposed to roof maintenance problems. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the trusses to the collar beams, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as repairing a bowing truss) 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. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing contractor in the local area for the job itself.
