Which building survey should I select for my potential house purchase in Hillsborough?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hillsborough and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hillsborough property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Hillsborough property's general condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to commission the full structural survey when considering a modified Victorian property near Hillsborough as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally still called a Full Structural Survey, it is no longer available and has been reclassified by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the right term is now the Building Survey. Opt for a RICS Building Survey in the case of the house mentioned. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a post fifties unmodified home of standard construction materials.

You should be aware of a few restrictions come with any residential survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor is not in a position to open up the structure of the house of assess serviceability of a boiler.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about pests on the street - Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Pests like cockroaches may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Hillsborough. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to pest problems can include use of insecticides or destruction of tainted materials.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Hillsborough property will include a valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate. To work out the property's value your chartered surveyor will take into account knowledge of Hillsborough as well as other factors about the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and make certain other assumptions such as there being no major problems. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further Hillsborough conjectures, such as use of communal grounds or the property being insurable, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

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.
