HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Fowey and which 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 Fowey property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Fowey property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a garage) and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. To estimate the market value your chartered surveyor will refer to area knowledge and other things relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also examine style of architecture and draw upon other assumptions such as it is connected to mains services.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Fowey assumptions, such as stairway access to a flat or water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like flightpaths, also being considered.

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the location of the meter at the home, as well as gas connected installations for example - flue/chimney maintenance. Your Fowey qualified RICS surveyor won't remove gas fittings and will not conduct any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Gas can be unsafe, if you have any worries about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call an engineer immediately.
