HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Whiston and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Whiston property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Whiston property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Whiston surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Whiston property will contain an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise the correct valuation your independent surveyor will pair local property market knowledge as well as other factors about the property for instance: state of repair Your Whiston surveyor will also consider construction type and will use other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any major legal issues such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor.

Additional local Whiston area assumptions, such as stairway access to a maisonette or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to Whiston environmental problems like local industry, which will also be factored in.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the past. What should we do about roof repairs?

Residential property in Whiston that are otherwise ideal can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof like. From decking to tie beams, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. The surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as thatching) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A roofing contractor can provide an estimate.
