Which Building Survey should you choose?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Dunnington and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Dunnington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Dunnington property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

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

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To ascertain an accurate value estimate your surveyor should use knowledge of Dunnington and other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Your Dunnington surveyor will also consider construction type and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects.

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. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal issues for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Dunnington environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, also being considered.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact may wet weather have on our new house, and does our Dunnington property surveyor mention it? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Regular rainfall is common in Dunnington and across the country, but wet weather and the effect it can have on Dunnington homes are not considered by home buyers. If you have only seen the home in dry conditions, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include spalling on walls around drainage. This can lead to water damage.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy, if not neglected.
