HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Southfields and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Southfields property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Southfields property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation as well as a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To properly appraise an accurate value estimate your surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Southfields market and other considerations about the property for instance: style of architecture Your Southfields surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will draw upon key assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been employed.

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.

It will be assumed that there aren't any problematic legal problems for example consent for alteration having been given and complied with. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor.

Further Southfields assumptions like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Southfields environmental concerns like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Southfields. Can a RICS surveyor consider signs of flood damage?

Burst dams, tidal activity and inadequate drainage can cause flooding, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the survey report may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a survey report if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

Fortunately, no recent Southfields flood alerts have been given (source: Environment Agency).
