About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Braunton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Braunton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Braunton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, 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 major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Braunton property's state of repair as well as information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as a standard part of the survey. To work out the valuation the valuer will call upon experience of property in Braunton and other factors about the property e.g. size The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain key assumptions e.g. there are no damaging materials. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Braunton environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look out for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Braunton.

Stucco is actually a kind of smooth solid render. Typically it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to an even finish. The finish is very beautiful and is found on Georgian properties. It is very like plaster and mortar. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors frequently discover defects such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Re-coating problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor check the safety of the gas supply?

The will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the mains is connected as part of the Braunton survey, in addition to gas related appliances or installations such as chimney linings. Should there be any external fittings or housings they won't actually be detached. Gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.
