HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Wythall and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Wythall property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Wythall property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons to upgrade to the full structural survey in Wythall rather than a HomeBuyer Report if buying a modified bungalow?

Although sometimes described as Structural Surveys by many - they are now entitled Building Surveys You should plump for a Building Survey for the house you are thinking of buying. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a mid 20th century of later Wythall house of standard construction materials and methods.

You should be aware of a number caveats are integral with any survey as a RICS surveyor wont be able to open up the structure of the Wythall house nor can he/she assess safety of gas sources.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My housemate spotted signs of vermin in the bedrooms. Do we need a surveyor?

Scare stories about home vermin are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as cockroaches as minor annoyances.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for pests may include removal or excision of affected timber. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report in Wythall will include a valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor should use knowledge of Wythall as well as other factors about the property e.g. state of repair The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain other assumptions such as it is connected to mains services. Surveyors disregard things like sales incentives.

Additional local Wythall area conjectures, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like flightpaths, also being considered.

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.
