HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Rothwell and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Rothwell property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Rothwell property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Does the Rothwell home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall)

A Homebuyer Report on a Rothwell property will include a surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To properly appraise the valuation your RICS valuer will factor in local property market knowledge and other factors about the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain key assumptions like the ground is not land filled.

Additional local Rothwell area assumptions, for example services, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like busy roads, which will also be factored in.
