HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Lambeth and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Lambeth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Lambeth property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Lambeth include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To ascertain the market value the valuer will take into account in depth understanding of the Lambeth market and other factors about the property e.g. square metres Your Lambeth surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions e.g. no contamination in or from ground.

A Building survey won't 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 surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there is an absence of any costly legal problems such as access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor give details on the state of the gas flues?

Your surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include gas (and oil heaters) where relevant, as well as gas related fittings like fixed external ventilation hearths. The Lambeth qualified RICS surveyor won't actually remove external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to run any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Gas can be dangerous, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Defective door frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Lambeth home, can you give examples of Condition rating 3 defects affecting outside doors?

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

Outside doors are to be opened and closed if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. Generally, where doors have obviously been replaced, relevant issues are considered. This can include overall quality, whether the frame provides adequate support, and building regulations have been met (e.g. FENSA and Certass). Broken door glazing is an example.
