HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Streatham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Streatham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Streatham property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we commission a full structural survey when acquiring a derelict regency cottage in Streatham rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently described as a Full Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, it is no longer available and has been given a new name by RICS and the right term is now the RICS Building Survey. If buying a modified Streatham property, for example a property in poor condition house, the Building Survey is now the most appropriate survey. It will typically give thorough and relevant insight concerning the homes state of repair in conjunction with any important technical details a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building.

. External buildings will also be checked out.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a garage) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and will also include a Reinstatement Cost as standard. To ascertain the valuation your RICS valuer will relate to awareness of the Streatham property market and other things relating to the property for instance: state of repair The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain key assumptions e.g. no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors don't factor in things like sales incentives.

Additional local Streatham area conjectures like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like nearby pubs, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Streatham, and think we saw signs of pests in the study. Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. This danger should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Treatment for pests may include professional cleaning.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.
