Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

    A RICS Homebuyer Report should be chosen if planning to buy a home made of standard materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Filey property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Filey property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation as well as a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To ascertain the correct valuation the surveyor will combine local Filey market factors and other things about the property e.g. desirability of the location. The surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain key assumptions e.g. there being no serious defects.

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. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any major legal issues such as access to the property over estate roadways. Such concerns will be unravelled by your conveyancer.

Additional local area assumptions, like service connections, are made in addition to any environmental problems like brine mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Filey? Will the Home Survey consider this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious contracting effect on clay soil, compromising the property's structural integrity and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. There is a real benefit in booking a Filey surveyor to carry out your House Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying slightly more for a full structural survey for period home ?

Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its renaming some time ago by the RICS. You should select the Building Survey for the house you are contemplating. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a mid 20th century of later unmodified house built out of typical construction materials and methods.

Bear in mind that several caveats exist with any residential survey as RICS chartered surveyor wont be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the structure of the house for example, or investigate the internal state of any flues.
