HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Hindhead and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Hindhead property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Hindhead property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a garage) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes a surveyor valuation in addition to a cost of reinstatement included in the cost of the survey. When calculating an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will use awareness of the Hindhead property market and other things about the property e.g. size Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant Hindhead environmental concerns like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

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

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would be advised to look out for if intending to buy an extended house in Hindhead in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Hindhead are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any connection they have with the property. The price of property will be significantly higher due to them being preserved. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors can be expected to advise you if the home could be is designated and Section I of a Hindhead Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are conducted by your legal representation. Unauthorised extensions to the building may be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor. Brown-Hovelt Veale Nelson are a local firm situated at Stewart House, Chichester, West Sussex, GU26 6HF should be prepared to advise. Tel: 01428 607433

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous structured mineral. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. wall panelling. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to disturb asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will mention potential asbestos during the survey and will inform you of the options.
