Home Buyers Survey in Gnosall

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Gnosall and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Gnosall property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Gnosall property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Gnosall which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Normally stucco is applied to underlying brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. The coating is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Gnosall Homebuyer Reports sometimes discover defects for example, lateral cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints.

Another example of problems associated with stucco can possibly result be when moisture below windows which results in the render detaching. Re-covering Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the justification for conducting the full structural survey when considering a doer-upper terraced townhouse in Gnosall over a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly still referred to as a Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is now defunct and as it has been given a new title by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. If you are contemplating the buying of an altered Gnosall property like an extended house, this is the most suitable choice. This survey details crucial details about the homes construction and uses along with any technical details a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house. There are certain restrictions with the survey as RICS chartered surveyor is not in a position to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Gnosall building e.g. moving heavy furniture. Permanent outside buildings will typically be checked out by the surveyor.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report in Gnosall will include a valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To properly appraise the valuation your chartered surveyor will factor in experience of property in Gnosall and other factors about the property e.g. state of repair The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions, for example there being no significant defects. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like sales incentives.

Further Gnosall conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, 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 nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
