HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Princes Risborough and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Princes Risborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Princes Risborough property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. In order to determine the valuation your independent surveyor will take into account local Princes Risborough market factors as well as other factors about the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also evaluate materials used and draw upon key assumptions like no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Princes Risborough area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or services, are made in addition to any Princes Risborough environmental problems like nearby pubs, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor check the safety of the gas heaters?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for instance, as well as gas connected appliances or installations, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). Should there be any external fittings or housings they won't be taken off. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we commission a full structural survey before buying a doer-upper regency house near Princes Risborough?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. Choose a Building Survey in the case of the house outlined. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post fifties unmodified Princes Risborough house assembled from normal construction materials and methods i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. You should be aware of certain provisos exist with a Building Survey as a surveyor is not authorised force or open up the structure of the house for example, or survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.
