HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Shanklin and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Shanklin property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Shanklin property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Shanklin include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees) and how is it worked out

Shanklin Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation as well as a rebuilding cost as part of the survey. To fully consider an accurate estimate of the value of the building your surveyor will combine knowledge of Shanklin and other considerations about the property for instance: square metres. Surveyors also evaluate construction type and make certain other assumptions like there being no serious defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

It will be assumed that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal problems such as there being no on going disputes. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Additional local Shanklin area assumptions, such as access to a flat or problematic roads and access, are made in addition to local environmental issues like brine mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor advise on the safety of the gas installations?

A local surveyor will visually survey the accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include gas heaters for example, in addition to gas associated appliances e.g. chimney breasts. A Shanklin RICS chartered surveyor will not remove any fittings nor will they carry out any tests on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Shanklin house surveyor check for possible flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage can all result in extensive floods, and home purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the house survey may offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
