HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Parkwood Springs and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Parkwood Springs property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Parkwood Springs property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Parkwood Springs property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Parkwood Springs, and will the HomeBuyer Report look for signs of flood damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Flooding in Parkwood Springs can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The residential surveyor may ask the occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

No recent flood alerts were made for Parkwood Springs, according to the Environment Agency.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the thirties house we are planning to lease, it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring - will a Homebuyer Report in Parkwood Springs write anything on the electrics?

When performing a Parkwood Springs Homebuyer Report the surveyor should add detail on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. The RICS surveyor should also report on potential areas for concern such as reporting on the state of fitted appliances such as electric showers or confirming that the supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed will form part of the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Parkwood Springs surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. When calculating an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will use in depth understanding of the Parkwood Springs market and other things relating to the property for instance: square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon other assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings.

Additional local Parkwood Springs area conjectures, like service connections, are made in addition to environmental concerns like pig farms, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
