HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Marylebone property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Marylebone property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor mentioned that the had been issues with dry rot - What should we do about roof repairs?

This often causes anxiety for buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many homes can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. trusses. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Roof upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. What can we do?

Pests like dust mites may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Marylebone. This concern should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious. For example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to insect infestation can include chemical treatment. The RICS surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Marylebone include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Marylebone property will contain a surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To estimate an accurate value estimate the valuer will pair knowledge of Marylebone as well as other factors about the property e.g. general condition The valuer will also consider style of architecture and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used.

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. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any costly legal issues e.g. consent for alteration having been given and complied with. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant Marylebone environmental issues like pig farms, also being considered.
