Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Cholsey

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if you are buying a home built from standard building materials i.e. brick and tile, in reasonable order and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Cholsey

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Cholsey) will also be conducted by a RICS qualified surveyor but is more comprehensive. Select this for unconventional e.g. stone buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Cholsey

    This is a professional valuation of the property. This is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Cholsey and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Cholsey property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Cholsey property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Cholsey surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as a standard part of the survey. When calculating the valuation the valuer will relate to knowledge of Cholsey as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine construction methods and draw upon other assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been employed.

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.

Additional local area assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Cholsey environmental concerns like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we need to check on when buying a home in Cholsey inside a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor need to possess local knowledge of local considerations and any effect they have with the building. Property values tends to be greater which is down to conservation areas being in their original state.

Surveyors are expected inform you whether the location is or might be so designated and Section I of your Cholsey Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by your legal representation. Unsympathetic extensions to the property will also be reported in the Cholsey survey but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Cholsey, and can a Cholsey house surveyor look for any water damage?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams can cause flood damage. Both home purchasers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that action is taken, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Cholsey area likely to affect the home also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The property surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Cholsey.
