HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Tolworth and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tolworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Tolworth property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey 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

A Homebuyer Report in Tolworth will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost. To estimate the market value your surveyor will use in depth understanding of the Tolworth market and other things relating to the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also examine construction methods and will use other assumptions e.g. no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors will ignore things like sales incentives.

Additional local Tolworth area conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in.

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.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor report on the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

A surveyor will locate and visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the meter is in an escape route for example, in addition to gas related installations, for instance chimney linings. Should there be any external fittings or housings they will not be detached. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it can be deadly, should you have any concerns about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

We are buying an old property. What impact will the residence's cruck frame have on maintenance?

Some buyers have looked at purchasing a old, characterful home one day. For traditionally-built Tolworth property, age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Properties constructed with traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.
