HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Sutton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Sutton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Sutton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Sutton include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Sutton property will contain a property valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as standard. In order to determine the market value your surveyor will use local property market knowledge and other factors about the property for instance: size The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use key assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as gas. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Sutton conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental issues like railways, which will also be factored in.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can my Building Survey consider this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects. , such as sticking window frames. Steps like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Conservatory

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

One example would be settlement or other movement in a conservatory. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will also be mentioned in the report. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how concerning each aspect of the report is. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage.
