HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Priorslee and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Priorslee property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Priorslee property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that the had been a problem with loose tiles. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors in Priorslee by buyers who are aware that property will suffer issues with the roof like. From concrete tiles to roof battens, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated. Your surveyors in Priorslee may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as felting a flat roof) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Priorslee Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as an integral part of the report. To be able to determine an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will combine local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Your Priorslee surveyor will also consider style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions like there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors will disregard things like sales incentives.

Additional local area conjectures, such as access to a flat or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like mining activity, 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.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Priorslee. Is there a flood risk, and will the chartered surveyor search for flooding?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and property buyers and owners are understandably concerned.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. In addition, the Building Survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the residents, but this information may not be accurate.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Priorslee.
