Which Building Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Weymouth

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when you are buying a property constructed from standard materials i.e. brick and tile, in reasonable order and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Weymouth

    The Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Weymouth) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this for non standard e.g. stone buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Weymouth and which is cheaper?

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

If the Weymouth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Weymouth property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Weymouth , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does the home surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. Many properties can be blighted by roofing problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from wind braces to trusses, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as thatching) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Speak to Whalley Ken Roofing Ltd of 3 Cambridge Court, Granby Industrial Estate, Weymouth, DT4 9TJ on 01305 771077 for more information.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the home we are hoping to lease, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - will the Weymouth surveyor advise on the electrical system?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Weymouth a RICS surveyor will make a note on the overall electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a poor state. This should include a by sight (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection and examination of open or exposed sections of the wiring as well as areas e.g. verifying the condition of any fixed electrical appliances, for example heaters. Examining the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician will form part of the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Weymouth home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Weymouth property will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. When calculating the property's value your independent surveyor will pair in depth understanding of the Weymouth market and other considerations about the property e.g. desirability of the location. The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key 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 by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there are no significant legal issues like the property being sold with vacant possession. These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Additional local area conjectures, such as access to a flat or service connections, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like mining activity, also being considered.
