    The RICS Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Paignton) is also conducted by a RICS qualified surveyor and is more thorough. Opt for this for unconventional such as stone buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Paignton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Paignton property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Paignton property will include a property valuation and a reinstatement cost as standard. In order to determine the property's value the valuer will take into account local property market knowledge and other considerations about the property e.g. state of repair Surveyors also reflect on materials used and draw upon key assumptions like it is connected to mains services.

A Building survey won't 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 compromising legal problems like no problematic restrictions. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local Paignton area conjectures like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Paignton environmental problems like flightpaths, which will also be factored in.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a detached house in TQ4 for £218, 750. What different issues will your surveyor evaluate on a RICS survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could positively or negatively affect the price of property ranging from whether work needs to be to the property to the architectural style of the property. It often helps to compare with prices recorded in Paignton for comparable properties.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £191, 750, which is £27, 000 less than the asking price (£175, 249 was the blended house/flat average). Jupiter House, Yalberton Autos Tobay Ltd, Aspen Way, Paignton, Torbay, Torbay, TQ4 7QR a detached property sold for £350, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an independent house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component.

A professional qualified surveyor will visit the home in addition to allowing for any other issues that can impact on the value of property.

Damage resulting from flooding

When getting in Paignton, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the property surveyor check for water damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses and flats are at risk of water damage caused by flooding; sensible owners and house purchasers in Paignton are right to consider precautions. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. Flood water can enter a property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the chartered surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the current owner, but this information may not be accurate.
