Which Home Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Kegworth

    A RICS Homebuyer Report should be chosen if you are buying a home made of standard materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Kegworth

    The RICS Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Kegworth) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor but is more comprehensive. Choose this for non standard property such as wychert houses.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Kegworth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Kegworth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Kegworth property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Kegworth property will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost. To ascertain an accurate value estimate your chartered surveyor will pair local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation The valuer will also consider materials used and draw upon key assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to local environmental issues like the property being underneath a flight path, also being considered.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can rainfall have on our new Kegworth property? And could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the effect which wet conditions has on your property is overlooked by buyers. Signs that drainage are blocked include a waterlogged garden, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. Where this is disregarded, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Kegworth, and the property's foundations have been built on clay soil. Can a HomeBuyer Report consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the bedroom to a difficult-to-open bedroom window. A Kegworth surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
