HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in West Byfleet and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the West Byfleet property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the West Byfleet property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the West Byfleet home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. When calculating the correct valuation your RICS valuer will use local West Byfleet market factors and other factors relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location.. The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions, for example it is connected to mains services.

A Building Survey won't 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 West Byfleet conjectures, for example service connections, are made as well as any significant West Byfleet environmental concerns like flightpaths, also being considered.
