Home Buyers Survey in Carlisle

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Carlisle and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Carlisle property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Carlisle property's general condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Carlisle include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

Carlisle Homebuyer Reports a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To ascertain the correct valuation the surveyor will should use knowledge of Carlisle as well as other factors about the property e.g. state of repair Your Carlisle surveyor will also consider construction type and will use key assumptions, for example the property isn't on a land fill site. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions, like service connections, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like local Carlisle industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Carlisle RICS surveyor investigate signs of water damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses and flats are at risk of flooding damage, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. In addition, the house survey may offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The surveyor will usually recommend that the property purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
