HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Fulwood and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Fulwood property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Fulwood property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to buy a property in PR3 for £214, 209. What considerations will a Fulwood qualified RICS surveyor take into account during a RICS survey ?

Any number of issues that might affect house prices ranging from the general economy to overall area pricing. It may help to compare with prices registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £207, 409, which is £6, 800 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average for houses and flats was £197, 588. 504, Whittingham Lane, Goosnargh, Preston, Preston, Lancashire, PR3 2JJ a detached property sold for £301, 000 .

The only way for you to get an accurate property valued is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Fulwood surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how does the surveyor work it out?

Homebuyer Reports include a property valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To properly appraise the property's value your surveyor will relate to knowledge of Fulwood and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and use other assumptions, for example the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there are no impossible to rectify legal issues like access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, such as stairway access to a maisonette or connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Fulwood environmental problems like local Fulwood industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Gas flame

Does the Fulwood surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas flues?

The RICS chartered surveyor will visually look at any easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like whether the meter is in an escape route as part of the Fulwood survey, in addition to gas connected appliances, for instance chimney breasts. If there are any gas fittings they won't actually be taken off. Gas is potentially deadly, should you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.
