Which Home Buyers Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Hale

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when you are purchasing a home constructed from standard building materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Hale

    The RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Hale) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS qualified surveyor and is more thorough. Opt for this option for non standard e.g. timber wall properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Hale and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Hale property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Hale property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Window frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Hale home, what will 'E5 - Windows' cover?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Missing drip caps on windows is an example.

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor look into the state of the gas appliances?

A RICS surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected at the home, as well as gas affiliated fixtures, for instance chimney breasts or flues. The Hale surveyor won't remove the fittings and will not do any tests on the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Hale Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Hale property will include a valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost. To estimate the correct valuation the valuer should use local Hale market factors and other things about the property e.g. style of architecture. The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use other assumptions such as there being no significant defects. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Hale environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
