Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To estimate the value of the property your surveyor will take into account area knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions like the ground is not land filled. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like sales incentives.

Further Perivale conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental issues like busy roads, which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
