HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Kimberley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Kimberley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Kimberley property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Kimberley Homebuyers Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a maisonette proximate to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. industrial rubbish. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns for example cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural defects linked to the site. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Broxtowe Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the mid-century home we are hoping to acquire, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets; will the surveyor write anything on the electrical system?

During a Building Survey in Kimberley your surveyor will make a note on the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in a hazardous condition. The RICS surveyor is trained to report on possible problems relating to things like ascertaining the nature of electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate a PIR should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Kimberley home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a boundary wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a valuation and also a reinstatement cost. To fully consider the value of the property the valuer will factor in area knowledge and other considerations about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine construction type and make certain other assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Kimberley area conjectures, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like local Kimberley industrial considerations, also being considered.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
