HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Preston Park and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Preston Park property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Preston Park property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in a house we used to own. Which issues relating to the property's roof will be looked into?

Residential property in Preston Park with no other major issues can still be subject to issues with the roof. From purlins to collar beams, every element of the roof should be investigated. Factors like a poor asphalt covering are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Preston Park, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing specialist in Preston Park with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Preston Park Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

Preston Park Homebuyer Reports a professional valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as standard. To estimate the correct valuation the surveyor will take into account local property market knowledge and other considerations about the property for instance: accommodation Your Preston Park surveyor will also consider style of architecture and use other assumptions like there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors disregard certain things like sales incentives.

Further area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like Preston Park planning proposals (e.g flight path), also being considered.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
