HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Beddau and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Beddau property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Beddau property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Beddau surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report in Beddau will include a valuation and a reinstatement cost. To fully consider the property's value your chartered surveyor will pair area knowledge and other considerations about the property for instance: accommodation The valuer will also consider materials used and make certain key assumptions like there being no serious defects. Surveyors ignore certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Beddau area conjectures, like service connections, are made in addition to any Beddau environmental concerns like brine mining activity, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations cause difficulties? I am buying a house in Beddau. Will a Beddau Property Survey look into this, and what defects will be reported on?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a home's foundations can create difficulties, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as minor wall cracks in the garage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we are intending to buy it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a surveyor write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When conducting a Beddau Homebuyer Report a qualified surveyor will usually remark on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe state. Your surveyor will also possible problems relating to things like verifying the category of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Beddau. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Beddau .

The IEE strongly advise a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) should be carried out every ten years (5 if letting).
