HomeBuyer Report

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a retaining wall) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To work out the property's value your RICS valuer will use local property market knowledge and other considerations about the property e.g. general condition The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and make certain other assumptions e.g. no significant problems. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings, for example curtains. It will also be assumed that there aren't any major legal problems for example access to the property over estate roadways. Such concerns will be unravelled by your legal representative.

Further area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like local mining issues, also being considered. A Building survey does not 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.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos coatings spayed on beams at the property. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. eaves. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in ironing boards for example.

All forms including Chrysotile are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought immediately. On no account endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Hailsham survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and should inform you of the options.
