HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Twyford and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Twyford property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Twyford property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I would like to purchase a property in RG10 for £250, 500. What things does a Twyford chartered surveyor take into account in the process of a home buyers survey ?

There are many factors that might affect property values ranging from noise to whether there are any conservation area infringements. You can try to look at values recorded in the same area for similar flats. The average flat price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £225, 000, which is £25, 500 less than the asking price. The average factoring in houses and flats was £390, 632. Dorndon House, Flat 5, School Road, Hurst, Reading, Wokingham, Wokingham, RG10 0GD a leasehold apartment recently sold for £225, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a professional property valuation, one way is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. Your chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can the House Survey consider this?

Whether a home was built in 1702 or 2002, factors as varied as low-grade construction materials or mould can create major repair bills for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in numerous issues. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Signs like sticking window frames or minor wall cracks in the garage can be early indications of very serious structural issues. A Twyford surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Isolated patches of wet and dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will refer to local property market knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. size Surveyors also examine style of architecture and will make certain key assumptions e.g. 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 is also on the basis that there aren't any serious legal problems for example no troublesome covenants. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer.

Additional local Twyford area assumptions, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to local environmental problems like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
