HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Woodford Bridge and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Woodford Bridge property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you comprehensive details of the Woodford Bridge property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to opt for a full structural survey if buying a un-loved Victorian bungalow in Woodford Bridge over a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently referred to as a Full Structural Survey by house buyers, it is now defunct and as it has been re-titled by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the right name is now the RICS Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a 60 year old or less Woodford Bridge house built out of conventional construction materials. A Building Survey would be the most advisable one to go for the house mentioned. Once a thorough visual inspection of all accessible areas, a formal written report will be dispatched to the prospective purchaser setting out any salient advice about the construction of the home. There will be one or two limitations with a Building Survey because a surveyor

cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Woodford Bridge house e.g. removing loft contents.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor look at the safety of the gas supply?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually look at the accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the routing of any gas pipes where relevant, in addition to gas related fixtures like fireplaces. Should there be any external fittings or housings they won't actually be undone. Of course, gas can be dangerous, should there be any concerns about gas or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Woodford Bridge include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will combine awareness of the Woodford Bridge property market as well as other factors about the property e.g. state of repair.

The surveyor will also consider construction methods and use key assumptions like there are no dangerous materials.

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 surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no problematic legal problems for example no laws are broken by intended use of property. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Woodford Bridge conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
