HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Malton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Malton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Malton property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Malton surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Malton property will contain a property valuation and a reinstatement cost. In order to determine the value of the property your chartered surveyor should use area knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. state of repair The valuer will also consider materials used and make certain key assumptions e.g. the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property

Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any serious legal problems such as consents for works having been granted. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions like services, are made in addition to environmental problems like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to purchase a house in Malton, does the surveyor check indications of flooding?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage could all cause major flooding damage, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home in Malton, such as via loose patio doors. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the seller, but this information may not be accurate.

Landfill site near home
