About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kimberley

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Kimberley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Kimberley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Kimberley property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Cotswold stone-built structures be difficult to repair. Are there any related issues that need to be investigated, and what will the survey reveal?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings in Kimberley, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a maisonette proximate to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. industrial rubbish. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns for example cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural defects linked to the site. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Broxtowe Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Kimberley home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a boundary wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a valuation and also a reinstatement cost. To fully consider the value of the property the valuer will factor in area knowledge and other considerations about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine construction type and make certain other assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Kimberley area conjectures, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like local Kimberley industrial considerations, also being considered.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
