HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Epworth and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Epworth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Epworth property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Epworth chartered surveyor look for indications of flood damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: Evening Standard); sensible owners and home buyers in Epworth are right to consider precautions. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Epworth property in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house enables the residential surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The residential surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the period property I am interested to move into I think we saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, will a surveyor report on the electrical system?

When conducting a Epworth Building Survey your RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in a hazardous state of repair. He or she is expected to give detail on possible problems relating to things like where to find the meter and fuse board . Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of any recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE suggest an electrical system check is carried out every ten years (5 if letting out).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Epworth include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To properly appraise the value of the property your chartered surveyor will refer to in depth understanding of the Epworth market as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and draw upon other assumptions such as no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings.

Further Epworth conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or services, are made as well as any significant Epworth environmental problems like nearby pubs, also being considered.

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