Home Buyers Survey in Springwell

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Springwell and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Springwell property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Springwell property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

In a Springwell HomeBuyer Report, what could a Condition Rating 1 mean for outside doors?

A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. Outside doors are to be opened and closed if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. In general, the security offer by these doors will be reported on. Broken door glazing would be reported here, for example.

Damaged Render

What defects will your Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated Victorian house in Springwell.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is a sort of flat finish render. Normally it is applied to brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency houses. It used to contain lime in it in addition to a grid underneath to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors frequently reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems for example trapped water resulting in internal damp problems.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may include sulphate attack from salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Fixing Stucco problems can be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Springwell include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To be able to determine an accurate value estimate your chartered surveyor should use local Springwell market factors as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres The surveyor will also consider materials used and will draw upon other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building survey won't 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. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues e.g. your potential purchase is sold with vacant possession. Such concerns will be unravelled by your conveyancer.

Further area conjectures, for example services, are made as well as any significant Springwell environmental issues like pig farms, which will also be factored in.
