HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Ilminster and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ilminster property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations on the Ilminster property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Ilminster property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Ilminster house what effect will a Condition rating 2 have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

One example issue could be planters and gardens abutting walls. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements will be covered. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. This may not be urgent, however. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Ilminster home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Ilminster property will include a valuation as well as a reinstatement cost estimate. To ascertain an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will use local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: square metres The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and use key assumptions like there being no major problems. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal problems such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Ilminster assumptions, like problematic roads and access, are made in addition to local environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

Gas flame

Will the Ilminster surveyor report on the safety of the gas heaters?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually survey the accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route at the building, as well as gas connected appliances like balanced flues. Any gas fittings won't actually be detached. Of course, gas can be fatal and if there are any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.
