HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Haverhill and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Haverhill property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Haverhill property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation and will also include a cost of reinstatement as a standard part of the survey. To estimate the property's value your chartered surveyor will refer to area knowledge as well as other factors about the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions, for example no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Haverhill conjectures, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like nearby pubs, also being considered.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when purchasing an old building? What effect will the unusual construction have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers plan to buy a old, characterful home one day. Older construction methods and materials, however, can concern buyers, and Property built with traditional methods can be expensive to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs.If you plan to make alterations to a period structure, discuss options with your Haverhill surveyor for more information.

Chimney stacks

In a Haverhill HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E1 - Chimney stacks' refer to?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey.

A fairly common example may be a sloping chimney cap. Elements of the property reviewed by Section E should be examined, using binoculars as necessary.
