HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Little Ilford and which is the cheapest?

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Little Ilford property will contain an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To fully consider the value of the property your independent surveyor will use knowledge of Little Ilford as well as other factors about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will make certain key assumptions such as the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors don't value certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to Little Ilford environmental issues like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.

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.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Little Ilford properties at risk, and does a home surveyor search for flooding?
