Home Buyers Survey in Upton Upon Severn

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Upton Upon Severn and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Upton Upon Severn property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Upton Upon Severn property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons in upgrading to a full structural survey in Upton Upon Severn rather than a HomeBuyer Report when looking into a un-loved detached bungalow?

Albeit recurrently, and incorrectly, called Full Structural Surveys, they have been replaced by Building Surveys If you are buying an unusual Upton Upon Severn house - such as a tatty house - it is now the right survey to choose. A Building Survey outlines full and important information in relation to the buildings state of repair in addition to any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. There will be certain limitations with a Building Survey insofar as a RICS surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Upton Upon Severn building for example removing secured panels. Permanent outbuildings will typically be checked out.

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor look at the condition of the gas flues?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected for example, as well as gas associated appliances or installations like chimney breasts or flues. Your Upton Upon Severn local surveyor will not remove the external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests of any kind on the system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it can be hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and Should we still go ahead with the purchase?

Asbestos is a harmful substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types may be in building materials for example garage roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in shed roofs.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to disturb asbestos and professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Upton Upon Severn HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will note possible asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties create upkeep problems for the buyer? Are there any defects that need to be investigated?

From Spynie Sandstone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include efflorescence.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Upton Upon Severn Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will refer to experience of property in Upton Upon Severn as well as other factors about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also examine materials used and will use other assumptions, for example there being no major problems. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings. The valuation is also on the basis that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal issues e.g. no troublesome covenants. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of communal grounds or connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

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