Which Building Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Mitcheldean and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Mitcheldean property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Mitcheldean property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the house I intend to lease I noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does Homebuyer Report in Mitcheldean advise electrical defects?

When performing a Mitcheldean Home Survey your surveyor will typically make a note on the electrics if it looks like they are in an unsafe condition. A Home surveyor should also provide detail on issues like confirming the condition of fitted electrical appliances such as storage heaters. .

Examining the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey. Reporting on any documentation from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Mitcheldean .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend that a periodic test need be completed every ten years (5 if renting out).

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 garage) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate. To be able to determine the correct valuation the surveyor will refer to knowledge of Mitcheldean and other considerations relating to the property for instance: accommodation The valuer will also consider style of architecture and use other assumptions such as no significant problems.

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. It will also be assumed that there are no impossible to rectify legal issues for example planning permissions being in order. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like local mining issues, which will also be factored in.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that the had been a problem with damage to the parapet, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What advice would the Mitcheldean property surveyor give in their report?

Local property with no other major issues will suffer roofing woes. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the gables to the collar ties, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The expense of felting a flat roof, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
