HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Chingford Hatch and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Chingford Hatch property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Chingford Hatch property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a property valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To work out the property's value your RICS valuer will relate to in depth understanding of the Chingford Hatch market and other considerations about the property for instance: state of repair The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions, for example 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. RICS valuations assume that there are no expensive legal problems such as there being no on going disputes. Such concerns will be unravelled by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures, like services, are made in addition to environmental issues like flightpaths, also being considered.
