HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Maida Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Maida Hill property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Maida Hill house what can 'E7' refer to?

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Building regulations and issues relating to correct planning approval are considered (e.g. is it a conservatory, an extension, or a 'sun room'?) will also be mentioned in the report. Rusted conservatory walls or columns is one defect applicable to this section. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the impact on the property individual defects may have. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to consider downspouts? We're concerned about replacement costs.

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet this issue is often overlooked by home buyers. For example, corroded downspouts may indicate that the drainage are blocked, and may lead to hazardous mould. The good news is that this is quite easy to remedy. If not maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Maida Hill Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a cost of reinstatement as an integral part of the report. To estimate an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will relate to local property market knowledge and other things about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions, for example there being no serious defects. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings, for example curtains. It will be assumed that there is an absence of any major legal issues for example no laws are broken by intended use of property. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local area conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or services, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like brine mining activity, 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.
