HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Crofton Park and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Crofton Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Crofton Park property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in Crofton Park, does the house surveyor consider flooding damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Crofton Park Crofton Park home is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the RICS surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood warnings were found for Crofton Park.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings)

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a rebuilding cost. To ascertain the correct valuation your RICS valuer will relate to local Crofton Park market factors and other factors about the property e.g. desirability of the location. The surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions such as there being no major problems. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Crofton Park area assumptions, for example service connections, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered. 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.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I opt for the full structural survey if buying a abandoned fifties property near Crofton Park as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Periodically called a Full Structural Survey by many, this survey is no longer available has actually been reclassified by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. Select the Building Survey if you are planning to buy the house mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a non period unmodified Crofton Park home of standard building materials. There are some limitations exist with any residential survey - RICS chartered surveyor cannot open up the structure of the property nor can they inspect no ladder available for flat roofs.
