Home Buyers Survey in Norbiton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Norbiton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Norbiton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Norbiton property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older farmstead in Norbiton. Will the age of the residence be a problem?

Some buyers have considered buying property with real personality. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Norbiton homes built with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for Grade I listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will combine experience of property in Norbiton and other considerations about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and will make certain other assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there is an absence of any significant legal problems for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further Norbiton assumptions, such as stairway access to a maisonette or connection to sewers, are made in addition to local environmental issues like flood plains, also being considered.

Gas flame

Will a Norbiton surveyor check the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

A RICS surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances, for instance balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. The fittings will not be taken off. Gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.
