HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Cranleigh property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Cranleigh property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to order a full structural survey before investing in a poor condition fifties cottage in Cranleigh?

Full Structural Surveys are now called the Building Surveys. When looking into purchasing an unusual house like a period house in Cranleigh - it is now the correct property survey to go for. Following a thorough inspection of the accessible parts of the house a written report (pdf and written copy) will be sent to you providing in depth and salient advice concerning the condition of the house. There are several no go areas with a property survey because a surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the Cranleigh property e.g. removing secured hatches.

House Prices

I would like to purchase a flat in GU6. The vendor is asking £246, 497. What considerations will a Cranleigh chartered surveyor allow for on a valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that can affect the price of property from the legality of extensions to the number and size of bedrooms at the home. You can try to consider flat prices achieved in the area for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £240, 997, which is £5, 500 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £403, 187. 11, Nanhurst Park, Cranleigh, Waverley, Surrey, GU6 8JX a leasehold flat recently sold for £270, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get an impartial house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. Your qualified surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Cranleigh what are common an red light rating defects for 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

One example would be a taut asphalt roof due to shrinkage. Flat and sloping roofs will be reviewed, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.
