HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Headley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the Headley property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Headley property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor check the serviceability of the gas supply?

Yes. Your local surveyor will locate and visually look at any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include the condition of the meter as part of the Headley survey, as well as gas connected appliances or installations such as chimney linings. A Headley RICS surveyor won't remove any external fittings or housings and will not run any tests of any kind on the gas system. Gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Headley? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the effect which rainfall has on your home is overlooked. If you have investigated the property you intend to purchase on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious.

Signs that drainage systems are a cause for concern include corroded downspouts, and may lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk. Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If left untreated, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Headley surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

Headley Homebuyer Reports a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost included in the cost of the survey. To be able to determine an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will relate to in depth understanding of the Headley market and other things relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location.. Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions like there being no major problems. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there aren't any problematic legal issues like the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Further area assumptions, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Headley environmental concerns like the area being prone to flooding, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
