HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Sedgefield and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Sedgefield property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Sedgefield property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation in addition to a cost of reinstatement as part of the survey. To ascertain the correct valuation your independent surveyor will combine knowledge of Sedgefield and other things about the property e.g. general condition The valuer will also consider construction type and will use key assumptions, for example there are no dangerous materials. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there aren't any serious legal problems like the property being sold with vacant possession. These will be investigated by your conveyancer during the legal process.

Additional local area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 15th Century property in Sedgefield. What consequences will the building's design have on regular maintenance?

For houses in Sedgefield built before the 20th Century, age can sometimes be an issue. Buildings showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may end up costing more than initially budgeted. Contact your surveyor for further advice.
