HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Clayhall and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Clayhall property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Clayhall property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out the valuation your surveyor will use local property market knowledge and other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Your Clayhall surveyor will also consider materials used and make certain key assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal problems e.g. the possibility of legal enquiries revealing legal issue that might affect value. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Clayhall conjectures, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Clayhall environmental problems like railways, also being considered.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Clayhall property built in the late 60s, but it has clay foundations. Can your Clayhall Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as cracked plaster. There is a real benefit in booking a Clayhall surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the mid-century home we want to lease we saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, will the surveyor go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Homebuyer Report in Clayhall a RICS surveyor will usually comment on the electrics if it looks like they are in an unsafe state. The RICS surveyor is required to provide detail on potential areas for concern such as verifying the state of the fixed appliances e.g. water heaters. Inspecting the documentation from any recent PIR carried out by an electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Clayhall.

Confirming the existence of any documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Clayhall .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend a Periodic Inspection need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting).
