HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Willerby and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Willerby property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Willerby property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as part of the report. When calculating the property's value your chartered surveyor will factor in awareness of the Willerby property market as well as other factors about the property e.g. size Surveyors also examine style of architecture and make certain key assumptions, for example the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like sales incentives.

Further area conjectures, such as access to a flat or service connections, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when purchasing older property in Willerby? What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Older construction methods and materials can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Houses constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Traditional materials may be required. This may result in higher ongoing expenses.

Substandard guttering

In the HomeBuyer Report what are common Condition rating 3 defects for 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

The rainwater goods are inspected by eye, where access is possible. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report any defects in a combined system. Poor quality or inefficient downspouts is an example of this. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the Willerby house or flat's construction. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.
