HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Woking and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Woking property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Woking property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Woking Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a professional valuation and a Reinstatement Cost included in the cost of the survey. To work out the valuation the valuer will combine local property market knowledge and other factors relating to the property for instance: state of repair The valuer will also consider style of architecture and use other assumptions like there being no significant defects. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any significant legal problems like there being no on going disputes. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

Gas flame

Does a surveyor check out the state of repair of the gas flues?
