HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Bulkington property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Bulkington property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

For the Bulkington HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

Outside doors are to be opened and closed, but will not force open any without keys. Generally, glazing and safety glass issues are also checked. A rotted, damp wooden door frame, for example, is included in Section E.

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the Bulkington residence's construction. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Bulkington will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. When calculating the property's value your surveyor will combine knowledge of Bulkington and other things about the property for instance: state of repair.

The surveyor will also consider construction methods and draw upon key assumptions e.g. there being no major problems. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings.

Further Bulkington conjectures, such as use of communal grounds or connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, which will also be factored in. 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.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the house we intend to move into We noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does Homebuyer Report in Bulkington write anything on electrical system condition?

When performing a Bulkington Home Buyers Survey a qualified surveyor will typically add detail on the condition of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in an unsafe state. A Chartered surveyor should also issues like verifying the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the documents from any recent PIR handled by an electrician on the building will form part of the survey in Bulkington.

The IEE advocate an electrical system check should be carried out every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).
