HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Everton and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Everton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Everton property's state of repair along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Everton include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer should use local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will make certain other assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings e.g. carpets. It will be assumed that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal problems like there being no outstanding claims. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local Everton area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation. 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.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I need to look into if purchasing a converted house in Everton in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local councils. Your surveyor must possess relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection may have with the home. Values will be greater because of them being in good order.

Surveyors will tell you whether the location is or might be so designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised by your solicitor. Out of keeping changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it worth paying slightly more for a full structural survey when considering an apartment ?

The Building Survey has now superseded the Structural Survey following its reclassification in 2010 by RICS. This is now the correct choice of home survey when buying an unusual property e.g. an older apartment in Everton. This non prescribed format of report provides in depth and critical advice in relation to the homes construction on top of any needs for future maintenance, shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. You can compare what is and isn't included see surveys compared.
