HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Warsash and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Warsash property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Warsash property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown a sixties house we expect to move into We noticed that there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a Warsash survey go into detail on electrical defects?

When conducting a Home Survey in Warsash your RICS surveyor should add detail on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. He or she should also focus on possible problems relating to things like verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters. Reporting on any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Warsash.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Warsash include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report in Warsash will include a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To estimate an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will factor in awareness of the Warsash property market and other considerations about the property for instance: square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain other assumptions like there are no damaging materials. Surveyors will disregard certain things like sales incentives.

Further area assumptions, for example services, are made in addition to any Warsash environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, 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. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Deteriorated timber

In the HomeBuyer Report what are the usual a green light rating defects affecting 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

An example of this is warped wood sidings. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Fascias, soffits and eaves are reported on.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Red, amber and green ratings give buyers in Warsash indicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.
