HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Kelvedon and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Kelvedon property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the Kelvedon property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Kelvedon property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Kelvedon Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a boundary wall)

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a reinstatement cost. To estimate the value of the property your chartered surveyor will take into account awareness of the Kelvedon property market and other factors about the property e.g. style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use key assumptions, for example no significant 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. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any costly legal issues e.g. consent for alteration having been given and complied with. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor.

Further area conjectures, such as use of parking or services, are made in addition to local environmental problems like local mining issues, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we are interested to move into we saw that there were damaged electrical sockets; does Homebuyer Report in Kelvedon advise on the electrical system condition?

When performing a Homebuyer Report in Kelvedon your RICS surveyor should usually add detail on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a dangerous state.

This will include a visual inspection of the accessible parts of the wiring as well as areas e.g. if there is an off-peak /on-peak supply. .

Examining the documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Kelvedon. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advocate a PIR is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of asbestos wallpaper present in property. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous, can it be remedied and What should I do?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to electrical damage qualities and it may be found in insulating board. Technically all forms are ultimately potentially fatal and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken on no account to displace it and expert advice should be sought immediately. On no account attempt to remove it yourself.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will mention possible asbestos during the Kelvedon survey and will offer advice.
