HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Castle Donington and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Castle Donington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Castle Donington property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in a house we used to own. What aspects of the loft will be considered?

Castle Donington properties in otherwise fine condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. From gables to ceiling joists, many parts of the roof and loft should be reported on. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a poor asphalt covering.

Upkeep 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. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist in Castle Donington.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Castle Donington building will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To be able to determine the valuation the surveyor will combine local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider construction type and use other assumptions e.g. no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Additional local area conjectures like problematic roads and access, are made in addition to Castle Donington environmental issues like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in.

House Prices

There is a house in Castle Donington. What things does the qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Castle Donington during a professional valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect the price of property like the history of the property (e.g does it have a murky past) or defects in the lease. .

The best way to get an accurate property valued is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation by default.

The surveyor should actually visit the home as well as factoring in the myriad of area issues that might affect house prices.
