HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Coleshill and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Coleshill property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Coleshill property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Coleshill property will include an impartial valuation and also a cost of reinstatement. To properly appraise the market value your chartered surveyor will combine awareness of the Coleshill property market as well as other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and use other assumptions like there being no serious defects. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings, for example curtains. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any serious legal issues such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Additional local Coleshill area assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to any environmental issues like brine mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the building I intend to acquire it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets, will a Coleshill Homebuyer Report give details on on electrical defects?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Coleshill a qualified surveyor will usually make a note on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a poor state of repair.
