HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Whyteleafe and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Whyteleafe property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Whyteleafe property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation as well as a reinstatement cost estimate. To ascertain an accurate value estimate the valuer will refer to knowledge of Whyteleafe as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture The surveyor will also consider materials used and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local area conjectures, such as access to a flat or service connections, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation. A Building survey does not 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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can high levels of rainfall have on our new property?

I find it odd that this issue is rarely paid due attention by home buyers. If you have visited the property in good weather, issues may have been hidden, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to repair, if identified early. If not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor examine the safety of the gas appliances?

A local surveyor will locate and visually check the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route for example, as well as gas associated fittings, for instance prefabricated flues. External fittings or covers won't be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.
