RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Yateley Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation in addition to a "reinstatement cost" as part of the survey. To ascertain the correct valuation the surveyor will use experience of property in Yateley and other things relating to the property for instance: state of repair The RICS surveyor will also consider construction type and will use other assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building Survey does not 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. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal issues like access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Further Yateley conjectures, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like railways, also being considered.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home surveyor investigate any water damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home in Yateley, such as via seepage through external walls. The Building Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The surveyor may ask the residents if the home in Yateley has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Window frame

For the Yateley HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects for 'E5 - Windows' ?

An example defect for this is an inoperable sash window. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a Yateley house. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given.
