RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation and also a cost of reinstatement. To be able to determine the property's value the valuer will take into account local Walton On Thames market factors and other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will make certain key assumptions such as the ground is not land filled.

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. The valuation is also on the basis that there are no costly legal issues for example proper access over pathways. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local area conjectures, like service connections, are made in addition to local environmental problems like busy roads, which will also be factored in.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're planning to buy in Walton On Thames. Is there a flood risk, and will the Walton On Thames surveyor look for any flood damage?

The lives of many homeowners in Walton On Thames and across the UK have been impacted by flooding, and the value of a house in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house in Walton On Thames, such as via air bricks.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house in Walton On Thames enables the chartered surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What aspects of the loft will be investigated?

Walton On Thames property in good condition can be hiding serious cracked and loose slates or tiles, among a range of other roofing issues. From wind braces to fascias, every part of the roof should be investigated. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Walton On Thames, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Walton On Thames will look for a range of signs, including a poor asphalt covering.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like loft insulation, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Walton On Thames contractor.
