HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bramford and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bramford property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Bramford property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Bramford building will include an impartial valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will pair in depth understanding of the Bramford market and other factors about the property for instance: size. The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain key assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further Bramford conjectures, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental issues like local Bramford industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not 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.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the thirties house we expect to acquire, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a Homebuyer Report in Bramford write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

When preparing a Building Survey in Bramford the surveyor should comment on the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in an unsatisfactory state. This should include a by sight examination of the unconcealed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as potential areas for concern such as confirming the condition of fitted appliances such as water heaters. Inspecting the documentation from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey in Bramford. Inspecting any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Bramford .

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor go into detail on the state of the gas flues?

Yes. A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the condition of the meter where relevant, as well as gas connected installations like associated asbestos. The gas fittings however, won't be detached. Gas can be deadly and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations at all, or if you smell gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate that all landlords must to commission appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines or imprisonment .
