Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Camelford

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if you are buying a home made of conventional building materials i.e. brick and tile, not dilapidated and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Camelford

    The RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Camelford) will also be carried out by a RICS accredited surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this for non standard , for example wychert or older houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Camelford

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This is usually chosen by cash buyers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Camelford and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Camelford property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Camelford property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Window frame

For the Camelford HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects for 'E5 - Windows' ?

In Camelford, examples include air holes creating draughts around window frames. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a Camelford property. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Camelford house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a Camelford house does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to take notice of when purchasing a building constructed in 1760? What impact will the timber frame have on repairs?

For houses in Camelford built before the 20th Century, age can often be problematic. Camelford structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Camelford area, may also need to be sourced.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Camelford include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Camelford property will include a property valuation in addition to a cost of reinstatement as standard. To ascertain an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will relate to in depth understanding of the Camelford market and other things about the property e.g. square metres Your Camelford surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions e.g. there being no major problems.

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.

It will be assumed that there are no costly legal issues such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor during the legal process.

Additional local Camelford area assumptions, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, which will also be factored in.
