Home Buyers Survey in Barton Seagrave

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Barton Seagrave and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Barton Seagrave property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Barton Seagrave property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency house in Barton Seagrave.

Stucco is just a kind of smooth render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth flat finish. Stucco render is highly beautiful and is/was found on Victorian and Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Barton Seagrave Homebuyer Reports frequently highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, lateral cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints

Another example of problems can possibly result be when moisture under DPCs which causes the render detaching requiring raking back and reapplying. Resolving problems with stucco may be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Barton Seagrave Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a retaining wall) and how does the surveyor work it out?

Homebuyer Reports include an impartial valuation and a rebuilding cost as an integral part of the report. To fully consider an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will use awareness of the Barton Seagrave property market and other factors relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and make certain other assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further Barton Seagrave conjectures, for example service connections, are made in addition to any environmental issues like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
