HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Robertsbridge and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Robertsbridge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Robertsbridge property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

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

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. To fully consider the market value the valuer will refer to area knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. desirability of the location. Your Robertsbridge surveyor will also consider materials used and will draw upon key assumptions such as no significant problems.

A Building Survey does not 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.

Further area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Robertsbridge environmental issues like local mining issues, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Robertsbridge, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Does a Robertsbridge Home Survey discuss soil composition the report, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table, such as a hard-to-open kitchen door. A Robertsbridge surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the thirties house I intend to acquire, it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; will a Robertsbridge survey advise the electrics?

When performing a Robertsbridge Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor will add detail on the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This will include a visual inspection of exposed areas of the wiring as well as areas e.g. inspecting the state of any fitted appliances like storage heaters or the state of miniature circuit breakers. Looking at any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Robertsbridge.
