HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Heath Hayes and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Heath Hayes property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the Heath Hayes property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Heath Hayes property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a HomeBuyer Report investigate any flooding?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flood water can enter a Heath Hayes property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the agent, but this information may not be accurate.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood alerts were found for Heath Hayes.

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor check the condition of the gas heaters?

The will locate and visually check any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected for instance, as well as gas associated installations like chimney breasts. A Heath Hayes RICS surveyor won't remove the external fittings nor will they do any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Heath Hayes will include a surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as an integral part of the report. In order to determine the value of the property your surveyor should use in depth understanding of the Heath Hayes market and other things relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local area conjectures, like water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like intrusive noises or smells, 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 small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
