Home Buyers Survey in Wythall

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Wythall and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Wythall property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Wythall property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a flat in Wythall and noticed cracks down the gable wall, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence information does the Wythall Building Survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement does happen in new homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, but this should settle after a short while.

Cracks that appear quickly may be a strong indication of subsidence. In extreme temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK. The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report in Wythall will include a valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor should use knowledge of Wythall as well as other factors about the property e.g. state of repair The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain other assumptions such as it is connected to mains services. Surveyors disregard things like sales incentives.

Additional local Wythall area conjectures, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like flightpaths, also being considered.

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

House Prices

There is a house in the centre of B47 - Wythall on for £279, 632. What will a qualified RICS surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Wythall ?

There are many factors that might affect property values for instance the square footage or the location and proximity of nearby schools. It may help to look at house values achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £271, 832, which is £7, 800 less than the asking price (£261, 811 was the blended house/flat average). 17, Morrey Close, Wythall, Birmingham, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B47 6AQ a detached house sold for £359, 995 .

An impartial way for you to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as a core component. Your RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A professional chartered surveyor should visit the site in addition to considering the countless location factors that can affect the value of property.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older farmhouse in Wythall. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

The age of a structure can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Structures featuring traditional methods can be costly to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs.
