HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Wealdstone and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Wealdstone property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Wealdstone property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External walls

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

Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. Mortar of a veneer wall that has badly deteriorated is an example.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

A Homebuyer Report will contain a professional valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will factor in knowledge of Wealdstone and other factors relating to the property for instance: accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon other assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors don't value certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Wealdstone area conjectures like services, are made in addition to environmental issues like flood plains, which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should wet weather have on our new property in Wealdstone? If there is necessary work, will they be costly to fix?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that this issue is rarely paid due attention by buyers. For example, rusted iron elements suggest that the gutters are at risk.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
