HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Victoria Dock and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Victoria Dock property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Victoria Dock property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a garage) and what will it include?

Victoria Dock Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To fully consider the correct valuation your independent surveyor will pair in depth understanding of the Victoria Dock market and other things relating to the property for instance: general condition The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use other assumptions e.g. 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. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any costly legal problems like the property being sold with vacant possession. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Victoria Dock conjectures like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to environmental concerns like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about vermin. Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Victoria Dock home may not be raised during the conveyancing.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include insecticides or destruction of tainted materials. If you strongly suspect an issue with rats, or any pest, speak to your surveyor

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons for having a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys no longer exist anymore as the Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a mid 20th century of later unmodified property of normal construction materials and methods. A Building Survey would be the right survey for the house described. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the house, a written report is emailed (pdf format) and posted to the prospective buyer outlining any important advice about the state of repair of the property.

There will be a few limitations with a Building Survey to be aware of insofar as RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Victoria Dock building e.g. lifting up floor coverings.
