HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Roundhay and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Roundhay property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Roundhay property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a sixties house I am hoping to purchase, it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets; does Roundhay Homebuyer Report go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Building Survey in Roundhay your RICS surveyor should usually remark on the electrical system if it is suspected that they are in a hazardous state. He or she is expected to focus on potential areas for concern such as verifying the state of the fitted appliances like storage heaters or the whereabouts of the consumer unit. Examining the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Roundhay.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can you offer for homes built with brick chimney?

Brick-constructed buildings do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also suffer from both minor and serious issues. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously. Handyman Services may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 88 Canada Rd, Cardiff, CF14 3BY or 029 2062 7477.

Buyers in Roundhay should consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours can be found across the UK. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Roundhay Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

Roundhay Homebuyer Reports a valuation as well as a cost of reinstatement as a standard part of the survey. To ascertain the property's value your independent surveyor will combine area knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate construction type and draw upon key assumptions e.g. there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors don't value things like sales incentives. The valuation also assumes that there are no problematic legal issues like your potential purchase is sold with vacant possession. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to environmental concerns like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
