RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Earls Barton home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a professional valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To fully consider the correct valuation your chartered surveyor will refer to knowledge of Earls Barton and other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres Your Earls Barton surveyor will also consider materials used and draw upon key assumptions, for example the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will rainfall have on a property? Also, if there is a problem, will they be costly to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact wet weather can have on Earls Barton buildings is often overlooked by purchasers. For instance, mildew or damp in the roof will likely suggest that the gutters are damaged. Blocked rainwater goods can result in penetrating damp.

The good news is that problems with drains are generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
