HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ripley and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ripley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Ripley property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I upgrade to full structural survey prior to investing in a defective, sixties top floor maisonette in Ripley?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Full Structural Survey following its renaming a couple of years ago by the RICS. The Building Survey is the best home survey when purchasing an unusual home like a dilapidated house. This non prescribed format of report provides in depth and often crucial advice concerning the homes state of repair and any maintenance needs after a thorough inspection of the accessible parts.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor check the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

Yes. Your will visually look at any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route where relevant, as well as gas associated fixtures e.g. fireplaces. A Ripley RICS chartered surveyor will not remove any external fittings and won't run any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly and if there are any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Ripley property will contain a property valuation and a reinstatement cost. To ascertain an accurate value estimate the surveyor will combine local property market knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms The valuer will also consider materials used and make certain key assumptions like it is connected to mains services.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there are no problematic legal problems for example the property being sold with vacant possession. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local Ripley area conjectures, like services, are made in addition to any Ripley environmental issues like flightpaths, also being considered.
