Home Buyers Survey in Sutton On Sea

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Sutton On Sea and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Sutton On Sea property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Sutton On Sea property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

Sutton On Sea Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. In order to determine the valuation your surveyor will refer to knowledge of Sutton On Sea and other things relating to the property e.g. size Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and use key assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings.

Additional local area assumptions, like services, are made as well as any significant Sutton On Sea environmental problems like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Stone block wall damage

Can Slate-built property be a challenge. What should we be particularly aware of, and what does the survey cover?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Beer Limestone to Portland Roach Limestone. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property in Sutton On Sea but are worried about bugs. What should we do?

Pests like vermin may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Sutton On Sea. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for a serious infestation may include traps. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Sutton On Sea, what advice would a surveyor in Sutton On Sea give for a 90s property built from Sussex bond brick?

Brick-constructed houses do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also experience a range of defects, ranging from spalling to efflorescence. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Barnes & West of Old Orchard Ho/19 Lambley Rd, Lowdham, Nottingham, NG14 7AZ on 0115-966 5131.

E.g. running, or stretcher, bond.
