Home Buyers Survey in Burnopfield

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Burnopfield and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Burnopfield property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Burnopfield property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

A RICS surveyor will go to the building as well as allowing for the countless influences that might affect house prices.

External walls

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Burnopfield property what does a green light rating mean for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. A dropped, rotating or leaning arch is an example.

Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Burnopfield property will include an independent valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To estimate the valuation your RICS valuer should use local property market knowledge and other things relating to the property e.g. size The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use other assumptions such as there being no significant defects. Surveyors will disregard certain things like sales incentives.

Further area conjectures like issues with access, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like flood risks, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

I am buying a stone-walled conversion. What defects should we be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?
