HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hale End and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Hale End property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Hale End property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian house in Hale End.

Stucco is in fact just dense render. Usually stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very appealing and was found on Victorian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can discover issues such as damp trapped under paint. Other issues may be when water beneath sills that causes detachment. Re-applying Stucco problems can be difficult as the skills are becoming harder to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Hale End property will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a cost of reinstatement. When calculating the value of the property the valuer will pair area knowledge and other considerations about the property e.g. state of repair Surveyors also evaluate construction type and make certain other assumptions such as there being no major problems. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like the area being prone to flooding, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't 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.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the period property we are interested to move into, the agent said that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does a surveyor write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Home Survey in Hale End a RICS surveyor should remark on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. This will include a visual examination of open or exposed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to things, for example verifying the type of electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings. .

Examining the documentation from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Hale End.

The IEE advocate a Periodic Inspection be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
