HomeBuyer Report

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out an accurate value estimate the surveyor will take into account area knowledge and other factors about the property e.g. state of repair.

Surveyors also evaluate materials used and will use key assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues e.g. planning permissions being in order. Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local Ince in Makerfield area conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant Ince in Makerfield environmental issues like local Ince in Makerfield industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a possibility of asbestos boards around radiators affecting the property. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as sealant. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof tiles. It is mainly found in the US. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a solitary fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently. Getting rid of it will likely be dear and must always be carried out by trained experts.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will report on suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor look into the state of the gas installations?

A local surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the mains gas installation at the home, as well as gas related fixtures for example - the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. If there are any fittings they will not however be undone. Gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.
