HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Idle and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Idle property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Idle property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 18th Century renovated farmhouse. Will upkeep costs be higher?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning property with real personality. Use of traditional methods, however, can create difficulties for an owner, and Idle property employing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials.

House Prices

I want to buy a detached property in BD10. The asking price is £139, 181. What things will a Idle RICS surveyor take into account when carrying out a Home Survey ?

There are many factors which could affect house prices from proximity to transport to whether the property is listed. It often helps to set against values achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

This means house prices registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £137, 281, which is £1, 900 less than the asking price (£129, 714 was the blended house/flat average). 1, The Leavens, Apperley Bridge, Bradford, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD10 0UW a detached house sold for £355, 000 .

The most cost effective way for you to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service. Your surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A professional local surveyor will always visit the property as well as factoring in the variety of area issues that have a bearing on house prices.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Idle building will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To ascertain an accurate value estimate the valuer will pair awareness of the Idle property market as well as other factors about the property e.g. desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon other assumptions such as there are no dangerous materials.

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.

Further area assumptions, such as stairway access to a flat or service connections, are made in addition to Idle environmental problems like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
