Need a Property Survey ? Which one should you opt for?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Lymm and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Lymm property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Lymm property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservatory

In the HomeBuyer Report what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

E7 elements are visually inspected. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will be considered too. Mechanical damage to a conservatory roof is one defect applicable to this section.

A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the house or flat being surveyed does not need urgent attention, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent each defect requires attention.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home buyers survey inquire into possible flooding damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. Both house buyers and home owners in areas exposed to flooding are right to be worried. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an impartial valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost estimate as standard. When calculating the correct valuation your independent surveyor will relate to local Lymm market factors as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and draw upon other assumptions, for example the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there are no problematic legal problems like the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor during the legal process.

Further Lymm conjectures like services, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.
