HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Malden and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Malden property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Malden property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Home Buyers Surveys in Malden need to possess knowledge of local factors and any bearing they have with the building and its value. Prices is, more often than not, higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them being in good order.

Surveyors are trained to report whether the location is possibly classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by the conveyancing solicitor.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Malden surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Malden property will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. When calculating the valuation your RICS valuer will take into account awareness of the Malden property market as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: size Your Malden surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will make certain key assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area assumptions, such as stairway access to a maisonette or the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like local Malden industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

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.

Other external areas of the property

In a Malden HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition rating 3 have on 'E9 - Other' ?

Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Sagging railings is an example.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Malden are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a house's value. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular Malden house, omitting sections as necessary.
