Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Reigate

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice if buying a home built from conventional building materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Reigate

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Reigate) will also be carried out by a RICS surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this for unconventional such as thatched properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Reigate

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is usually chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone requiring a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Reigate and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Reigate property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Reigate property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a home proximate to Land Adj Junction 8 M25, Reigate, Rh2 on M25 and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including hazardous waste material. There are 1, 000's of sites affect 100, 000's people in England including Reigate. Concerns include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will find structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Reigate and Banstead Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Stone block wall damage

Can structures built with stone generate high upkeep costs for owners? What should we be particularly aware of?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of houses in Reigate, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses in Reigate, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we would need to on guard for if planning to buy a period property in Reigate inside a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Reigate surveyors need to have knowledge of local area issues and any bearing they have on the home. The price of property is, more often than not, enhanced due to conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many areas are falling into poor condition for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors will inform you whether the property looks like it may be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Reigate Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic modifications to the property will also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer. Sheppersons are based in Pool House, Reigate and Banstead, Surrey, RH2 7RP might be able to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01737 244987
