Home Buyers Survey in Washwood Heath

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Washwood Heath and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Washwood Heath property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Washwood Heath property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings)

A Homebuyer Report in Washwood Heath will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To ascertain the market value your chartered surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Washwood Heath market and other things relating to the property e.g. general condition Surveyors also evaluate construction type and will make certain key assumptions like there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

It will be assumed that there aren't any major legal problems like no laws are broken by use of property. Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Additional local Washwood Heath area assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Washwood Heath environmental concerns like Washwood Heath planning proposals (e.g flight path), 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. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Washwood Heath. What input does the surveyor give? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-walled apartments in Washwood Heath can suffer from diverse problems. These can include erosion or badly applied render. A defect requiring immediate attention is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. WHS Brickwork may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01787 282700 or Lower St, Stanstead, Sudbury, CO10 9AH.
