HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Wolvey and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Wolvey property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Wolvey property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Wolvey, and does our HomeBuyer Report mention it?

I find it odd that the effect which rain has on Wolvey property is not considered by house purchasers. One indication that downspouts are a cause for concern is water pooling below gutters. This could then result in rotten roof timbers.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the house I am hoping to purchase it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, does a surveyor go into detail on the electrical system?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Wolvey your surveyor will remark on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a hazardous condition. This will include a general inspection (without removing any fittings) of the open areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to potential areas for concern such as if there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. Reporting on any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey. Examining the evidence of any recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will be part of the Homebuyer report in Wolvey .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advocate a Periodic Inspection is carried out every 10 years (5 if letting).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Wolvey home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report in Wolvey will include a professional valuation and a reinstatement cost as a standard part of the survey. To fully consider the market value your surveyor will relate to knowledge of Wolvey and other things relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location.

Surveyors also evaluate materials used and make certain other assumptions like the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings e.g. carpets. The valuation is also on the basis that there are no compromising legal problems for example building regulations having been complied. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor during the legal process.

Further area conjectures like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey won't 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.
