About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Mortimer

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Mortimer and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Mortimer property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer comprehensive details of the Mortimer property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can the Building Survey investigate this?

There are more than a handful of issues associated with clay soil. Specific problems include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as a hard-to-open drawing room door. There is a real benefit in booking a Mortimer surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Mortimer building will include an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To work out the market value the valuer will take into account area knowledge and other things relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your Mortimer surveyor will also consider construction type and will make certain other assumptions e.g. the ground is not land filled. Surveyors ignore things like sales incentives.

Additional local area conjectures, such as access to a flat or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Mortimer environmental issues like busy roads, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
