HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Surrey and which one would be cheaper?

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

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Surrey property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice why not obtain an instant Surrey Homebuyers Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the home I am planning to buy, it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a the surveyor advise the electrics?

During a Surrey Building Survey a RICS surveyor will usually add detail on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous condition. This will include an overview inspection (without removing any fittings) of the unconcealed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to possible problems relating to things like verifying the external or remote installations such as power in garages. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Surrey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Surrey .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Surrey property with a loft conversion, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the home surveyor check when the property is surveyed?

Residential property in Surrey with no other major issues can be hiding serious roofing problems, such as. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to dormers. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing contractor in Surrey. Call A Mason & Sons Roofing Ltd of 145 Brighton Rd, Redhill, RH1 6PS on 01737 769888 for an estimate.

House Prices

I am planning to buy a property in KT24 for around £798, 967. What factors will Surrey RICS surveyor consider on a professional valuation ?

Any number of issues that can affect property values ranging from living on flood plain to the property's proximity to a conservation area. One method is to weigh up prices against the prices of house achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

The average house price registered between July and October in 2012 was £823, 067, which is £24, 100 more than the amount being asked. The average for houses and flats was £780, 509. Avalon, Meadow Bank, East Horsley, Leatherhead, Guildford, Surrey, KT24 6SW a detached house sold for £410, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an impartial home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service.

A chartered surveyor will always attend the property in addition to considering the variety of items affecting property prices.
