Which Survey is the right choice for my planned property purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bedfont

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when you are buying a home constructed from conventional building materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bedfont and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Bedfont property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Bedfont property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a valuation in addition to a cost of reinstatement included in the cost of the survey. To ascertain the correct valuation the valuer will take into account local Bedfont market factors and other considerations about the property e.g. square metres. Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will make certain key assumptions like no significant problems. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Bedfont assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to Bedfont environmental problems like local mining issues, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can wet weather have on our new property? Could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which damp weather has on your property is usually overlooked by home buyers. If you have only visited the new home in dry weather, issues may have been hidden, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. However, if the drains are poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when purchasing an older property in Bedfont? Will the home's age be a concern?

For houses in Bedfont built before the 20th Century, age can concern buyers, and Homes built with traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential. Discuss this with your RICS surveyor for more information.
