HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Brown Edge and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brown Edge property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Brown Edge property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Brown Edge Home Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

Brown Edge Homebuyer Reports a professional valuation as well as a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will factor in local Brown Edge market factors as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. state of repair Your Brown Edge surveyor will also consider construction methods and use other assumptions such as it is connected to mains services.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there are no costly

legal issues for example Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made in addition to local environmental problems like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Brown Edge - What aspects of the roof of the house will be considered?

Questions like this are often asked of building surveyors by home buyers who are aware that property can often hide problems like bowing beams. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder for the job itself.

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor give details on the state of the gas mains supply?

Yes. A RICS surveyor will locate and visually examine any accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the meter location/position as part of the Brown Edge survey, in addition to gas associated appliances/installations e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. A Brown Edge surveyor won't actually remove any external fittings nor will they conduct any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations legally require landlords to carry out appliance and installation inspections yearly. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .
