HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Shoreditch and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Shoreditch property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Shoreditch property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our house surveyor search for flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Shoreditch house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for residences in flood-risk areas. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Shoreditch area likely to affect the house also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the current owner, but this information may not be accurate.

No flood alerts were given for Shoreditch, according to the Environment Agency.

Do all Shoreditch surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report in Shoreditch will include a surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as standard. To be able to determine the correct valuation your chartered surveyor will refer to experience of property in Shoreditch and other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.
