HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Belper and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Belper property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Belper property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Belper property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Belper property will include a valuation and a reinstatement cost as standard. To be able to determine the correct valuation your RICS valuer will combine awareness of the Belper property market and other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Your Belper surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain key assumptions like there are no damaging materials.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there are no problematic legal problems for example access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local area conjectures like problematic roads and access, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will wet weather have on a house? Will the Belper building survey report on this? Also, if there is work that needs to be done, will they be disruptive to fix?

Regular rainfall is common in Belper and across the country, but this issue is not given enough thought by buyers. If you have only visited the house in dry weather, problems are unlikely to be visible.

Whether buying in Belper or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the mid-century home we are planning to lease We noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, will a surveyor report on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Building Survey in Belper your surveyor should usually remark on the condition of the electrics if it looks like they are in a hazardous state of repair. A Chartered surveyor is trained to provide detail on concerns such as checking the external installations e.g. out houses with a power supply or any garden lighting. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will be part of the survey in Belper. Looking at any documentation from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey in Belper .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommend that an electrical system check be completed every ten years (5 if letting out).
