HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Badminton and which is cheaper?

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

If the Badminton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Badminton property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get an instant Badminton Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Badminton will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise the market value the valuer will pair knowledge of Badminton and other considerations about the property e.g. state of repair Your Badminton surveyor will also consider construction methods and will draw upon other assumptions such as there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Badminton area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to environmental problems like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying a higher price for a full structural survey, as opposed to a Homebuyer Report when considering fifties cottage ?

The Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its reclassification a couple of years ago by RICS. If intending to buy a modified Badminton home, for example an older house, this is now the right selection of survey. This survey will detail full and crucial insight about the buildings construction in addition to any maintenance needs after a thorough inspection of the accessible parts. External buildings (if permanent) will also be reported on.

Asbestos roof tiles

I have suspicions that there could be asbestos sprayed on coatings present in the home I am buying. What is asbestos, can it be treated and will the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials including fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire doors.

All forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during a Badminton building survey. Your Badminton surveyor should note potential asbestos and should offer advice.
