HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Aldeburgh and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Aldeburgh property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Aldeburgh property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Aldeburgh surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. To fully consider the property's value the valuer will call upon knowledge of Aldeburgh and other things relating to the property e.g. size Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and will use other assumptions like there being no serious defects.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area conjectures, such as stairway access to a flat or service connections, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like brine mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I should be conscious of if planning to buy a home in Aldeburgh near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Aldeburgh are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local issues and the connection they have with the home. Prices will probably be enhanced as a result of conservation areas retaining their original character.

Surveyors can be expected to advise if the home looks like it may be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised during the conveyancing process. Unconsented developments that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor examine the serviceability of the gas installations?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected at the home, in addition to gas associated gas fittings in the home like flue/chimney maintenance. The external fittings however, won't be dislodged. Needless to say, gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords are obligated to complete appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .
