HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Gants Hill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Gants Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Gants Hill property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any factors we should be conscious of if planning to buy a house in Gants Hill inside a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have knowledge of relevant local considerations and any connection they have on the property. Property Prices tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them retaining their original character. However a large number have been neglected and are in a state of neglect e.g. ugly satellite dishes

RICS surveyors will advise whether the location is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unapproved modifications to the property may be noted, however these should be investigated by the lawyer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Gants Hill Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall)

The Homebuyer Report contains a professional valuation as well as a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To work out the correct valuation your independent surveyor will pair experience of property in Gants Hill and other things about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Your Gants Hill surveyor will also consider style of architecture and use other assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further Gants Hill assumptions like the property being insurable, are made in addition to any Gants Hill environmental concerns like local Gants Hill industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the mid-century home we are hoping to lease we saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; will a Homebuyer Report in Gants Hill advise the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Building Survey in Gants Hill the home surveyor should usually remark on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe state of repair. This should include a general inspection (without removing any fittings) of the superficial areas of the wiring as well as areas e.g. if there are residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) or verifying the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Gants Hill. A check for the evidence of any recent PIR carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Gants Hill .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) should be carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).
