HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Louth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Louth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Louth property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement cost. When calculating the correct valuation the valuer will factor in local Louth market factors and other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions such as there are no hazardous 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. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any problematic legal issues like the tenure being as indicated (e.g freehold). These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Further Louth assumptions, like problematic roads and access, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like Louth planning proposals (e.g flight path), which will also be factored in.

Gas flame

Does the Louth surveyor look at the condition of the gas installations?

Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the gas pipe route at the home, as well as gas affiliated installations like associated asbestos. Should there be any external fittings they won't actually be dislodged. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this home is located near a stream. Is there a major flood risk? Would our property surveyor check any flood damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are at risk of flooding, and house buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The house survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.
