HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Edith Weston and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Edith Weston property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Edith Weston property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Edith Weston Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing permanent outbuildings)

The Homebuyer Report contains a professional valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To estimate the property's value your independent surveyor will relate to in depth understanding of the Edith Weston market and other considerations about the property e.g. style of architecture The valuer will also consider materials used and make certain key assumptions such as the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey does not 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. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any significant legal problems such as building regulations having been complied. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local area conjectures, such as access to a flat or the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant Edith Weston environmental problems like local Edith Weston industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent warned us that access to the roof could be something to worry about, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the building surveyor look for?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Edith Weston. Homes throughout Edith Weston can still be subject to damage to the roof. From wind braces to sheathing, the whole roof should be investigated. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A roofing contractor in the local area with solid references can provide a quote.

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers in Edith Weston a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Edith Weston are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects which do not fit into the other categories. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Rusted conservatory walls or columns is one defect applicable to this section.
