HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Skellingthorpe and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

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

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Skellingthorpe property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Skellingthorpe property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservatory

On a Skellingthorpe HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects impacting 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will also be mentioned in the report. Rotten railings is an example of this. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give buyers a clear understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Severe defects impacting the Skellingthorpe house or flat are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see a sixties house we are hoping to lease it appeared that there is an old fuse board , will a Skellingthorpe survey go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Skellingthorpe Homebuyer Report a RICS surveyor should usually add detail on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A professional surveyor is trained to report on issues like checking the condition of any fitted electrical appliances, e.g. storage heaters or where to find the meter or consumer unit. Verifying the location of the evidence of any recent PIR handled by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Skellingthorpe home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. In order to determine the value of the property the valuer will refer to awareness of the Skellingthorpe property market and other considerations about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your Skellingthorpe surveyor will also consider construction type and will make certain other assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there are no serious legal problems e.g. no laws are broken by intended use of property. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Skellingthorpe conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Skellingthorpe environmental issues like flood plains, which will also be factored in.
