HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Malpas and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Malpas property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Malpas property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are common Condition Rating 1 defects for joinery and finishes?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the residence being surveyed does not need urgent attention. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out.

In Malpas, an example may be loose or missing tiles. Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling will be investigated.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should we spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to acquiring a defective, eighties warehouse flat close to Malpas?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey. A Building Survey is the right selection of survey when buying an altered property, for example an extended Malpas flat. It gives frequently critical advice on the buildings condition along with any defects after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. Also flats involve shared parts of the building which cannot always be accessed. , therefore the surveyor can only report on the flat itself although he/she give details of communal parts of the property such as common parts. For a table containing a breakdown of Building Surveys and HomeBuyer reports visit surveys compared.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a retaining wall)

The Homebuyer Report includes a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as part of the report. When calculating the market value the valuer will pair knowledge of Malpas and other factors relating to the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also examine construction methods and draw upon key assumptions like it is connected to mains services. Surveyors ignore certain things like furnishings.

Further Malpas assumptions, for example services, are made as well as any significant Malpas environmental problems like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

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.
