HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Hathern and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hathern property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Hathern property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a risk of asbestos flooring materials in existence at the apartment. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any risks and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as eaves. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in ironing boards.

All forms (including white) are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to break it and expert advice should be sought immediately. You should not attempt to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos during the survey and will suggest experts are consulted.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas supply?

A will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the location of the meter at the building, as well as gas related fixtures e.g. associated asbestos. However, the Hathern surveyor won't remove the external fittings and won't run any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations legally require landlords to complete appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are severe .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Hathern include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as site clearance) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation as well as a "reinstatement cost". To properly appraise the valuation the valuer will relate to area knowledge and other factors about the property e.g. square metres Your Hathern surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions such as there being no major problems.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there aren't any major legal problems e.g. the possibility of legal enquiries revealing legal issue that might affect value. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like the area being prone to flooding, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
