HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Danescourt and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Danescourt property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Danescourt property's condition along with advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the home I am interested to buy, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets; does the surveyor advise the electrics?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Danescourt a RICS surveyor should usually make a note on the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in a less than satisfactory state. Your surveyor should also possible problems relating to things like verifying any outside installations, for example garden lighting. Inspecting the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician on the building should form part of the survey in Danescourt. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed should be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) strongly advise a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

A Homebuyer Report on a Danescourt property will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out the correct valuation your surveyor will factor in awareness of the Danescourt property market and other things relating to the property for instance: style of architecture. Surveyors also reflect on materials used and will use key assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Danescourt conjectures, for example issues with access, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

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

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 15th Century renovated farmhouse in Danescourt. What should be budgeted for repairs?

Vernacular architecture can concern buyers. Danescourt property built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. Speak to your chartered surveyor for further advice.
