HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Gamston and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Gamston property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Gamston property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we are intending to acquire, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, will a Homebuyer Report in Gamston go into detail on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Gamston the surveyor will comment on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. A Surveyor should also focus on concerns such as verifying the state of the visible wiring. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should usually be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor check out the condition of the gas supply?

Your will visually look at any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated installations e.g. associated asbestos. However, the Gamston chartered surveyor will not remove the fittings nor will the surveyor do any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially dangerous and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To estimate the property's value the surveyor will call upon knowledge of Gamston and other factors relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms.

Surveyors also evaluate materials used and use other assumptions e.g. no significant problems.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there are no costly legal problems for example no troublesome covenants. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer. during the legal process.

Additional local area assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any environmental problems like local mining issues, which will also be factored in.
