HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Billingshurst and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Billingshurst property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Billingshurst property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits of carrying out a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys do not technically exist now Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a 60 year old or less unmodified Billingshurst property of conventional building materials. A Building Survey is certainly the proper survey for the property described. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal written report will be posted and emailed to the buyer running through comprehensive and important professional advice on the condition of the house. There will be one or two limitations with any survey to be aware of insofar as a local surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Billingshurst property e.g. removing roof space contents. See the survey differences article for more detail on home buyers surveys in Billingshurst.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about vermin in the building we plan to buy - Is a Property Survey advisable?

Property are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Regrettably, vermin can impact a home's worth and put your health in danger. An affected building may not always be easy to identify, for example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include professional cleaning. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy. Speak to an expert, e.g. Bioguard Environmental Limited, 5 Oakfield, Plaistow, Billingshurst, West Sussex, RH14 0QD on 0845 872 5284, for more detail.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. When calculating the correct valuation your independent surveyor will refer to knowledge of Billingshurst as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: size Surveyors also examine materials used and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. the ground is not land filled. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area conjectures like the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental issues like busy roads, also being considered. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
