Home Buyers Survey in North Newbald

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in North Newbald and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the North Newbald property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works on the North Newbald property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give a more detailed analysis of the North Newbald property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered regency home in North Newbald.

Stucco is really a smooth and flat render. Normally it is layered over brick to form a smooth stone like surface. The coating is very appealing and is common on some Victorian and Georgian houses. it can be prone to defect and North Newbald surveyors frequently report any number of problems for example, lateral cracking that describes the mortar joints underneath.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads above such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-coating problems with stucco may be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the building we are hoping to acquire it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets - will a North Newbald survey go into detail on the electrics?

During a North Newbald Building Survey the surveyor should usually report on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous condition. This should include a by sight view of the open sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as things like verifying the category of any electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will usually form part of the survey.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues? I am buying a property in North Newbald. Will the North Newbald HomeBuyer Report consider this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a house. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a house's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like monitoring the moisture content of the soil around the foundations, and taking steps to keep the level reasonably stable. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in North Newbald include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a North Newbald property will include a valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To ascertain the market value your chartered surveyor will take into account local North Newbald market factors and other factors about the property for instance: square metres.

Surveyors also examine materials used and use other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there are no significant legal issues like consents for works having been granted. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Further North Newbald conjectures, such as use of communal grounds or service connections, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
