HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Street and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Street property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Street property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Street surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what will it include?

Street Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To ascertain an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will call upon knowledge of Street and other factors about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate construction type and make certain other assumptions, for example there are no dangerous materials.

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

Additional local Street area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to Street environmental concerns like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

External walls

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual Condition rating 3 defects affecting main walls?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded. A fairly common example may be cracks in brick walls. Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here.
