HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Great Coates and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Great Coates property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Great Coates property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to buy a house in DN37 for £96, 264. What considerations will a surveyor consider when conducting a RICS valuation ?

There are many factors that can add to or subtract from the price of property ranging from whether correct consents are in place to the over all desirability of the street. It can help to benchmark prices house values achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £118, 064, which is £21, 800 more than the asking price. 4, Albatross Drive, Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire, DN37 9PE a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £165, 000 .

In order for you to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an integral component. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

The RICS chartered surveyor will always actually visit the house in addition to factoring in the multiple location variables that have a bearing on property values.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

The Homebuyer Report contains a professional valuation as well as a "reinstatement cost" as part of the survey. To fully consider the correct valuation your RICS valuer will take into account local property market knowledge and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

It will be assumed that there is an absence of any serious legal problems e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures like the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like nearby railway tracks, also being considered.

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.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have learnt that Great Coates property built on clay soil can experience problems. Will your House Survey look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Great Coates home. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Taking precautions, such as monitoring the moisture content of the soil around the foundations, and taking steps to keep the level reasonably stable, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
