HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chalk Farm and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Chalk Farm property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Chalk Farm property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 17th Century barn conversion. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Some buyers have considered buying a home with character, such as a Tudor home. For traditionally-built Chalk Farm property, age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Properties employing traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the mid-century home we intend to acquire we noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will a Chalk Farm survey go into detail on the electrical system?

During a Chalk Farm Homebuyer Report a RICS surveyor should usually mention the condition of the electrics if it looks like they are in a dangerous state of repair. He or she is trained to report back on potential areas for concern such as the mains supply. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Chalk Farm property will contain a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will use local Chalk Farm market factors as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will use other assumptions such as there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Chalk Farm area assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Chalk Farm environmental issues like the property being underneath a flight path, also being considered.

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.
