HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Henley In Arden and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Henley In Arden property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Henley In Arden property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Henley In Arden property and am a little concerned that the foundations are at risk. Will the Building Survey consider this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Specific problems include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. In Henley In Arden's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the drawing room wall to sticking window frames. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Henley In Arden, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Gas flame

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

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually check out the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the condition of the meter for example, as well as gas affiliated gas fittings in the home such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). However, the Henley In Arden RICS surveyor will not remove fittings nor will they conduct any tests on the appliances or system. Of course, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Henley In Arden home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Henley In Arden property will contain a valuation and also a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To work out the valuation your surveyor will combine knowledge of Henley In Arden and other considerations about the property for instance: size The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been used. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation 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 expensive legal issues for example no troublesome covenants. These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Further area assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like pig farms, which will also be factored in.
