HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Gravesend and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Gravesend property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Gravesend property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

On a Gravesend HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

An example defect for this is a rotted, damp wooden door frame. All doors leading outside are checked if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. In general, glazing and safety glass issues are also checked. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a house. Red, amber and green ratings give home buyers indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Gravesend, what input does a property surveyor in Gravesend give for homes constructed with brick? Is age a factor?

Brick-constructed homes in Gravesend demonstrate several benefits over timber-built homes, but they can also be affected by several common problems. These can include DPC failure or defective mortar. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey. A serious concern is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. GTB (Northwest) Ltd at 55 Market St, Wirral, CH47 2BQ on 0151-633 2112.

A number of approaches and materials of brick building have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as site clearance) and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report includes a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate. To estimate the correct valuation your chartered surveyor will take into account local property market knowledge and other things about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Gravesend area conjectures like services, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like railways, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
