HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in High Wycombe and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the High Wycombe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the High Wycombe property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the High Wycombe property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor go into detail on the state of repair of the gas flues?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually survey the accessible parts of the system. This means things like the condition of the meter for example, as well as gas connected appliances/installations e.g. chimney breasts or flues. However, the High Wycombe local surveyor will not remove the external fittings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes a valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost estimate. To properly appraise an accurate value estimate the valuer will take into account local High Wycombe market factors as well as other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions, for example there being no major problems.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, which will also be factored in.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would be advised to on guard for if planning to buy a property in High Wycombe inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local considerations and the bearing they have with the property and its value. The value of homes is usually greater due to the areas being in their original state. However many have fallen into poor condition for example - ugly satellite dishes

Property surveyors are expected tell you if the planned purchase is possibly within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Out of keeping extensions to the property should be advised, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
