HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Willingham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Willingham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Willingham property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Willingham surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will take into account knowledge of Willingham and other factors relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also examine construction methods and draw upon other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal

problems such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative.

Additional local Willingham area conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I would need to be wary of when intending to buy a converted flat in Willingham near a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Willingham need to have local knowledge of relevant local factors and any connection they have on the building and its value. House prices will be more than prices outside the area owing to conservation areas being in good order.

Property surveyors can be expected to note if the property looks to be classified as such and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be commented on but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor look at the serviceability of the gas mains supply?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the routing of any gas pipes where relevant, as well as gas connected fittings such as chimney breasts. If there are any fittings they will not be taken off. Gas can be fatal, should you have any worries relating to gas installations or if you suspect a gas issue, contact a gas safe engineer.
