HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Penley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Penley property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Penley home, can you give some examples of an amber light rating defects impacting roof coverings?

A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. As part of Section E, E2 reports on flat and sloped roof issues. These are checked, provided that access is possible. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. Oil or detritus on an EPDM roof is an example of a Section E defect.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Penley include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To estimate the market value your chartered surveyor will pair in depth understanding of the Penley market and other considerations about the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and use other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Penley conjectures, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental problems like local industry, 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 nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
