Do you need a Home Buyers Survey? Which survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Tonyrefail and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Tonyrefail property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Tonyrefail property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Tonyrefail will include a property valuation and a cost of reinstatement as a standard part of the survey. To be able to determine an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will take into account local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and draw upon other assumptions like no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there are no costly legal issues such as no laws are broken by use of property. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor during the legal process.

Further Tonyrefail conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental problems like nearby pubs, also being considered.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Tonyrefail, what will 'E2' cover?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Tonyrefail are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

In Tonyrefail, an example may be a brittle asphalt roof. As part of Section E, E2 reports on flat and sloped roof issues. These are comprehensively checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report.

Gas flame

Will a RICS surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas installations?

The qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually examine the accessible parts of the system. This will include the location of the meter where relevant, in addition to gas affiliated fixtures e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The Tonyrefail RICS surveyor won't actually remove the external fittings or housings and will not conduct any tests on the appliances or system. Gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.
