HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Ollerton and which one would be the cheapest?

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

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

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Ollerton property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall)

A Homebuyer Report in Ollerton will include a surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To estimate the value of the property your surveyor will refer to area knowledge and other things relating to the property e.g. style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings.

Additional local area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like local industry, 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.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the mid-century home I want to lease I think we saw that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - will a surveyor report on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Ollerton Homebuyer Report your surveyor will usually make a note on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. He or she is expected to provide detail on potential areas for concern such as confirming the condition of the fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters or whether there is an on-peak/off-peak supply.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Ollerton.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor examine the safety of the gas flues?

A chartered surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters for example, as well as gas connected appliances or installations e.g. chimney linings. However, the Ollerton RICS chartered surveyor won't actually remove any fittings and won't carry out any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 require that all landlords are obligated to complete appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .
