RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To ascertain the property's value the valuer will combine area knowledge and other things relating to the property for instance: size Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and draw upon other assumptions such as the property isn't on a land fill site.

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. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any problematic legal problems for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or the access roads not being in private control, are made as

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the Bidford On Avon Building Survey consider this?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay, with subsidence being a common example. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Bidford On Avon home's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Steps like avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
