HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Chippenham and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Chippenham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Chippenham property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

A Homebuyer Report on a Chippenham property will contain an independent valuation and a cost of reinstatement. To fully consider an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will use in depth understanding of the Chippenham market and other considerations about the property for instance: general condition The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and make certain other assumptions e.g. there being no serious defects.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there are no serious legal issues such as there being no outstanding claims. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local area assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like brine mining activity, which will also be factored in.
