HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Chessington and which is cheaper?

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

If the Chessington property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Chessington property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Chessington Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

Chessington Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost. In order to determine the valuation the valuer will factor in local Chessington market factors and other things about the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will be assumed that there are no costly legal problems for example no laws are broken by intended use of property. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Further area conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or services, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like flood plains, also being considered.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Which issues relating to the attic will be looked into for the survey?

Homes in the area that are otherwise ideal will suffer roofing problems. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormer windows to the parapet walls, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as wholesale replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A roofing specialist in Chessington with positive reviews can provide a quote.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we get a full structural survey when acquiring a modified forties townhouse near Chessington as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Often called a Full Structural Survey by many, this survey is no longer offered has actually been given a new title by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. If you are buying a modified Chessington house e.g. a dilapidated house - it is now the best selection of survey. The survey will provide full and relevant details about the property's construction materials in addition to any maintenance needs a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the house. There will be certain limitations with a Building Survey to bear in mind insofar as RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Chessington house, an example being the removing the contents of cupboards. Out buildings and boundary walls will also be reported on as part of the process.
