HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Basildon and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Basildon property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Basildon property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Basildon Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems at our old property, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we do about roof repairs?

Property in and around Basildon that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious damage to the roof. From purlins to parapet walls, every part of the roof must be reviewed. The Basildon surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Fixing a leaking roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Basildon building will include a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To estimate the correct valuation your RICS valuer will call upon awareness of the Basildon property market and other things about the property for instance: style of architecture Your Basildon surveyor will also consider construction methods and draw upon key assumptions e.g. there are no hazardous materials.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area assumptions like services, are made as well as any significant Basildon environmental concerns like Basildon planning proposals (e.g flight path), also being considered.
