HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in South Bromley and which is the cheapest?

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

If the South Bromley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the South Bromley property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas appliances?

The qualified surveyor will visually survey any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the mains is connected where relevant, as well as gas associated fixtures e.g. the possibility of asbestos. Your South Bromley local surveyor won't remove the fittings nor will the surveyor do any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. Gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries about gas fittings of any type, call a gas engineer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a building but are worried about vermin. What advice should we get?

Questions regarding the infestation of a South Bromley home may not be raised during the conveyancing. This issue should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for pest problems may include removal of infected furniture.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To estimate the valuation the valuer should use in depth understanding of the South Bromley market and other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Your South Bromley surveyor will also consider construction type and draw upon key assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as gas. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings e.g. carpets. The valuation is also on the basis that there are no problematic legal problems like the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative during the legal process.

Additional local South Bromley area conjectures, like services, are made in addition to environmental concerns like railways, which will also be factored in.

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.
