Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Reigate

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice if buying a home built from conventional building materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Reigate

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Reigate) will also be carried out by a RICS surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this for unconventional such as thatched properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Reigate

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is usually chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone requiring a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Reigate and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Reigate property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Reigate property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the building we are hoping to move into, it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - does a Reigate Homebuyer Report go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When performing a Homebuyer Report in Reigate the RICS surveyor will typically mention the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition.

This should include a visual inspection of the accessible parts of the wiring as well as concerns such as verifying the state of the fixed electrical appliances e.g. storage radiators or reporting on the condition of a sample of switch gear. Inspecting the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Reigate.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommend that a Periodic Inspection be completed every 10 years (5 if letting).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and also a Reinstatement Cost. To estimate an accurate value estimate the valuer will use in depth understanding of the Reigate market and other things relating to the property e.g. accommodation Your Reigate surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will draw upon key assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any compromising legal problems such as no problematic restrictions. Such concerns will be unravelled by your legal representative.

Further area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to environmental issues like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a property in Reigate and found wall cracks in the basement. What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. Heave is less common, and is caused by the death or removal of a large shrub or tree and its root network no longer draws water from the subsoil.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. Collapsed drainage can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This may be referred to as groundwater subsidence. Inside the house, keep an eye out for fresh cracks in brick or plaster.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
