HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Lincolnshire and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Lincolnshire property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a thorough analysis of the Lincolnshire property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Lincolnshire surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes a property valuation and a reinstatement cost as standard. To ascertain an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will take into account local property market knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms. Surveyors also examine style of architecture and draw upon other assumptions like the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Lincolnshire assumptions like services, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like busy roads, also being considered.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we would be advised to be aware of when buying a converted house in Lincolnshire in the vicinity of Caistor conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

Caistor is in a conservation area and has been classed as very bad by English Heritage, with medium vulnerability and improving. For further information visit their website or call the administrator. There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local considerations and any connection may have with the home. Property values is generally more than prices outside the area as a result of the areas being preserved.

Surveyors can be expected to advise whether the property could be classified as such and Section I of a Lincolnshire Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Unauthorised modifications to the property will also be advised but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the home we are hoping to acquire, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will a Lincolnshire survey report on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Lincolnshire the RICS surveyor should remark on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a dangerous state.

This will include a general check of any uncovered parts of the wiring or fusebox in addition to possible problems relating to things like ascertaining the category of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Lincolnshire.

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out).
