HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bedford Hill and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Bedford Hill property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Bedford Hill property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we choose a full structural survey when looking into a un-loved Edwardian bungalow near Bedford Hill over a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally, and incorrectly, called a Full Structural Survey by house buyers, this survey is no longer available has actually been given a new title by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. It is now the most appropriate RICS survey if buying an unusual property, for example a neglected Bedford Hill house. It provides in depth and critical details in relation to the homes construction in conjunction with any defects a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.

Conservatory

In the HomeBuyer Report what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside should also be reported on. Rotation of beams in a conservatory roof is an example.

Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular property, omitting sections as necessary.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Bedford Hill home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as a standard part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate value estimate the valuer will pair local Bedford Hill market factors as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further area assumptions, such as use of parking or connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't 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.
