HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Blaby and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Blaby property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Blaby property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Blaby, and can a Blaby house surveyor consider indications of water damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a property in Blaby will be secure against water damage caused by flooding; sensible owners and home buyers in Blaby are right to consider precautions. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The chartered surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate

A Homebuyer Report on a Blaby building will include a professional valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as part of the survey. In order to determine the property's value your independent surveyor will call upon awareness of the Blaby property market and other things relating to the property e.g. general condition. Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and will make certain key assumptions like there being no major problems. Surveyors ignore things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Blaby area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like the area being prone to flooding, which are also considered as part of the valuation. 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.
